Carbon tomato has dusty rose-brown skin with green shoulders. The plants are very productive with medium-large fruits that weigh 8-12 ounces. Some people compare the flavor to that of Cherokee Purple, but I think that Carbon is milder and more sweet than tangy.
Tomato 'Carbon' has been popular ever since it appeared on the scene in 1998. Brought into circulation by George Weiss of North Babylon, NY, who listed it in the SSE Yearbook.
Sowing Carbon Tomato Seeds:
Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date, 1/8" deep. Transplant tomato plants outside when danger of frost is past. Full sun. Spacing 2-3'.
