Black Cherry Certified Naturally Grown Seed

65 days, indeterminate — 'Black Cherry' plants are vigorous and very productive. Their bite-sized fruits are cherry shaped but have the dark, purplish coloring of the famous 'Cherokee Purple' tomato.

Pop one in your mouth and you will be rewarded with a wonderfully complex flavor palate that is fruity, balanced, very rich, sweet, and intense. 'Black Cherry' has become a very popular variety.

Although 'Black Cherry' is a newer tomato, it is an open-pollinated variety worthy of your garden space and as part of our seed bank. It was originally developed from a "natural occurrence" and introduced by the late Vincent Sapp of Tomato Grower's Supply Company in 2003.[1]

Our original sample was sent to us by David Pendergrass. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Great for kids
I probably only got to eat about five of these all summer long because my kids ate them, sometimes before they were fully ripe :D They are very tasty and very productive.

Best Tasting Tomato
Planted several different varieties of tomato, and so far this one is by far the best tasting. Sweet, but not overpoweringly so. I live near the Puget Sound, and these did not ripe until mid August, but were absolutely worth the wait. Will be planting these every year going forward. They were also avoided by the tomato worms that attacked some of my other heirlooms, so that was just an extra bonus.

Tastes like a miniature 'Rosella Purple'
Eating the first of our Black Cherry tomatoes and they're definitely a treat! If you didn't know better you'd think they were a Chocolate Champion or Rosella Purple tomato. Everyone loves them! We have five plants. Three are in a seven gallon grow bag and two are in the ground. All are eight plus feet tall and have hundreds of tomatoes!!!

Best Tasting Cherry Ever!
Started extras in case they didn't germinate. All my seeds germinated so I was giving away seedlings. Planted in 3 different micro climate locations-- 2 in ground, one in a big pot. All were prolific and delicious. Even people who "don't like tomatoes" loved them. Friends with part-sun yards or balconies are thinking of trying to grow them. Can't just eat one.

The Tiny Farm, Owner
Oh be careful! This tiny wonder is totally addicting. Once you grow them, you'll never want your garden to be without at least one of these glorious plants. It is very very productive. Can't rightly remember if I've grown it 3 or 4 years, but wow - every year it has amazed us. The fruit is enchanting - a lovely color and outstanding taste. Support it well, as the fruit is heavy and the vines can get quite long.
