Although recently introduced in the U.S. by Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, this late 19th century indeterminate tomato variety originated from the Black Forest region of Germany. Eva's Purple Ball Tomato produces smooth, round, blemish-free fruits, which are pinkish-purple in color. It performs well in hot, humid climates and is resistant to foliar and fruit diseases.
Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost date, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Plants require support and frequent fertilization. Approximately 35-40 seeds per packet.
