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:
Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Sow 1/8" deep. Place the pots in a warm spot to speed germination. The most common causes of poor germination are cold temperatures and burying the seeds too deeply.
Transplant outside when all danger of frost is past. Bury the stem up to the first set of true leaves (tomatoes root along the stem). Full sun. Spacing 30-36". Provide a large tomato cage for support.
