Rich, dark purpley brown skin over pink flesh, fruits average around 6 oz. The flavor is deep and sweet/acid and smokey. Potato-leaved vines are sturdy, supporting many small clusters of fruits.

I am partial to potato-leaved varieties for their strong vines, disease and sun scald resistance and ability to endure even the worst treatment a gardener can inflict on them. (Yes, another reason for you to try this one.)
 

HISTORY:  In 2011 I was sent seed labeled 'Chocolate Cherry' by Earl Bassett (MI). The following year, when I planted those seeds it was obvious that they were crossed as many of them came up PL (potato leaf) and Chocolate Cherry is RL (regular leaf). I grew out the off-types and selected for the most superior variant.

 

Sold in a 3.5" pot.
