Chocolate Champion originated from a cross between Golden Dwarf Champion and Cherokee Chocolate made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2006 named Cheeky F1. Chocolate Champion was selected and named by volunteer Ray South combining the names of both parents. It is a mid-season regular leaf brown/brick-red variety with richly coloured flesh. Fruits are medium oblate with tasty balanced full flavour. Plants reach around a metre+ / 3-4 ft by end of season. Photo: Tatiana’s TOMATObase
