Tomato 'Violet Jasper'

Tomato 'Violet Jasper' is so pretty! Like its sister, Topaz, it's a good seller at the farmers market. People can't resist the cherry-size, purple fruits with green streaks. It is slightly smaller than Topaz, weighing 1-2 ounces. The flavor is rich and tangy-sweet, but the skin is a bit tough. That's what keeps the fruits from cracking, so they stay looking nice. Very productive.

Tomato 'Violet Jasper' comes from China, where it is called Tzi Bi U.

Sowing Tomato 'Violet Jasper' 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.
