Delicious & Bountiful


These sweetly delicious fruits are excellent in Salads & Sweet Salsas. Grows well in pots. Very good producer. Has been made a staple in my garden. I also have not had issue with tomato hornworms with variety.

Incredible flavor, super productive, and beautiful


I'm completely wow-ed by the flavor of these delicious little tomatoes. They're basically as productive as my sungolds (though about 2 weeks later), and the two are closely tied for flavor for me. These have an incredible smoky, rich, almost wine like flavor, great for raw eating or for salsa, rich tomato sauces, roasting, you name it. Fruit are good size too compared to other smaller cherries. Plants are also vigorous and healthy, have withstood intense daytime heat and cold nights here in coastal California 9b. These are going to be a staple for us from now on, going to plant twice as many next year!

Black cherry tomato


Plants are very healthy looking 10 feet tall growing in a container with lots of tomatos on them. Requires staking and tying to keep growing up. Still flowering and plant dark green in late August in Pennsylvania. Beautiful cherry tomato with a sweet flavor. If you can only grow one cherry this is the one I would pick. If you love cherry tomatoes but haven’t tried this one, it is a definite addition I would add to your garden in the future.. I love the taste of this tomato it is so good and also pretty when you cut in in half.

Prolific, even with only morning sun


I planted an extra Black Cherry Tomato in our front yard as a test to see if it would do well with only 4 hrs morning sun. It has done better than any other tomato this year, taken over my front yard! Prolific, ripening before any others, and still producing. Giving them away there are so many. No issues with pests or disease, and seemingly drought resistant as I rarely water it.

Great Pick


This was my first year growing any tomatoes and these were the first to ripen and very vigorous growers and great taste. I will grow these next year for sure.

Lots of cherries!


As others mentioned, great producer of beautiful fruit. Excellent germination rate. Flavor profile is just okay, as some may be flavorless or sour whole others have a deep flavor of a purple cherry tomato. Great for roasting and drying.

Never fail


Easy to grow, prolific, and delicious. The trifecta.

Heavy producer, but taste just ok


Black cherry is very good producer, strong healthy plants, doesn’t crack too easy. But flavor is surprisingly blend for heirloom tomato.
