The first time I tasted a 'Brad's Atomic Grape' tomato in its true ripe form, I felt like I was biting into a fresh black plum! These tomatoes are so delicious, that I need to convince myself I'm munching on tomatoes and not stone fruits!
Skins have an almost crunch to them, while the flesh is nice and firm. The two together is where the sensation of eating stone fruit comes in.
Flavour of these tomatoes is sweet, meaty and juicy. Acidity is mild. Delicious eaten fresh off the vine (which is how I usually eat them!) or sliced into a salad. You could also have a little fun with them and make jam!
Fruits have the shape of an elongated cherry or grape tomato. Shoulders are wider than the tip, which tapers into a point. As the fruit develops, it changes colour from unripe black/dark purple to dark green with electric red and brown striping at full maturity. To check for ripeness, turn the fruit over to the unexposed side. This is where the colour change tends to be. Also, test for firmness. If the fruit has some give, it is ready. If it is firm, it needs more time. To learn more, see my YouTube video: "Tomato Harvesting Tips for Brad's Atomic Grape."
'Brad's Atomic Grape' tomato is an indeterminate type, meaning it is a vining plant that needs good trellising in order to support its growth. Once ripe, harvest regularly to encourage continuous fruit production.
Start seeds indoors at least 6 weeks before the final frost date. Please refer to my Seed Starting Calculator for specific planting dates for your area.
Tomatoes grow best in full sun and require consistent moisture, in order to avoid blossom end rot.
Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed and space your plants at least 2 feet apart.
