Overview

We grew a lot of tomatoes this year and in a “blind” taste test, Black Prince won hands down. This is the tastiest of them all! The flavor is rich, full, and deep. Black Prince is a thin skinned, medium size (3-4″) tomato that keeps really well. We love that it is not prone to cracking and mushing like larger heirlooms, yet just as juicy and flavorful. Its color is a gorgeous deep red, almost black. Black Prince is very versatile and is delicious eaten fresh off the vine, or made into salsa, soup, salad, and sauce.

Tomato, Black Prince Cherry – Solanum lycopersicum

We learned a couple tricks to growing great tomatoes from our experience working in different gardens: ground egg shells (calcium), bone meal (potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus) and garden compost (humus and microbes). At Camp Joy, tomatoes are grown in 4″ pots with a fine layer of egg shells at the bottom of the pot. We copied the same method and included another teaspoon full of egg shells at the bottom of the potting hole when we transplanted the tomatoes and to that we added a handful of bone meal and a generous scoop of compost for additional boosts.

As we trellised the plant vertically, we also pinched back all side branches so that the plant focused its energy on fruits and this gave us lots of gorgeous clusters of tasty tomatoes. Another tip: save your eggshells as you eat them and you’ll have plenty to use in the garden. It’s come in handy for most plants that need calcium such as peppers, brassicas, legumes, and potatoes.

Sowing Instructions

Sow seeds 1/4″ deep in flats 5-6 weeks before last frost. Keep temperature of the starting mix at 75-90°F (24-32°C). A heating mat might be needed to aid germination. When first true leaves develop, transplant into 3-4″ pots with a thin layer of eggshells at the bottom of the pot. Water only enough to keep the mix from drying. Over watering can cause “damping off,” which is a fungal infection that will cause the seedlings to collapse. Fertilize with fish emulsion.

Transplant into garden 24-36″ apart once all danger of frost has passed (avoid setting out unprotected plants until night temperatures are over 45°F). Dig holes deep enough to cover the roots up to the first leaves. Add to the hole a small handful of crushed egg shells, bone meal, and garden compost. Provide trellising for the plants to climb.

My Notes RE Bartering:

We are interested in bartering for organic or homegrown/homespun yarn, or other homegrown natural fibers that we can use for natural dying. We would also barter for honey, perennial fruit, nut, medicinal seeds or plants we don't have on hand. Other offers will also be considered.

You may scroll down to the Product Enquiry form to inquire about bartering with them and possibly setting up arrangements for a trade. All barters are facilitated privately between the parties involved. Barter at your own risk.
