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.
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!

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.

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.

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.
