Cherry shaped fruits that have the dark, purplish color.
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 dark, purplish coloring similar to 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 and is worthy of your garden space.

'Black Cherry' was originally developed from a "natural occurrence" and introduced in 2003 by the late Vincent Sapp, co-founder and original owner of Tomato Grower's Supply Company.[1] Our original sample was sent to us by David Pendergrass of Middle Tennessee. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Delicious and productive
These grew better the several other tomato varieties from different sources that I planted this year. The plants were hardy and vigorous when others suffered from our long, dry summer. The vines rambled quite a lot and I ended up using plenty of stakes for support. As far as flavor goes, these were a favorite of our family and friends. They are sweet and smoky like a Cherokee Purple. Great for eating fresh off the vine or tossing into a skillet as a last minute addition. I had so many fruit from five plants that I froze or preserved about five gallons of them at the end of the summer and could have had more. I'll definitely grow them again next year!

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.

Heat tolerant and prolific producer, excellent for "sun dried" tomatoes.
Wonderful flavor, heat tolerant and prolific producer, excellent for "sun dried" tomatoes. Not very pest resistant. Plants quickly overgrew usual tomato stakes and needed lots of reinforcement; next time I will trellis next to my beans.

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.

My favorite so far
I just had my first 'Black Cherry' tomato and it was so good. Sweet and tangy. The vines grew so fast, I'll have to start it a little later next year.

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.

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.

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!!!

Vigourous Plant; Prolific Fruit
Black Cherry is a fast growing plant than can get large fairly quickly. This, in turn, leads to many flower clusters and, further down the line, a significant yield of purple-fruited cherry tomatoes; it also has a pretty good flavor profile. It handled the extreme weather shifts I saw in 2021 quite well. Add it all up and you have a really good choice for most gardens and gardeners.
