When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost. Provide adequate light to produce sturdy plants.

Harvesting: Chocolate cherry are at the peak of sun-ripened deliciousness when they are purplish-red and have a slight give when gently squeezed. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of unripe tomatoes near the end of the season and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
