One of the tastiest cherry tomatoes of the 2005 season. Our customers at the farmer’s market seem to agree. The dark purple cherry tomatoes are born in large clusters on very vigorous plants. Very sweet and delicious fruit is great for eating out of hand or summer salads. Excellent paired with red and yellow cherry tomatoes. Indeterminate, regular leaf foliage. (70 days from transplant).

82 days in zone 3b/4a. Very vigorous. I stopped letting it grow any higher at 5 1/2 feet. The bush was full of clusters with 10-14 mahogany 1" tomatoes. A few were a little smaller than an inch in diameter. The fruit was sweet but not as sweet as Isis Candy.

80 days from transplant; planted both in garden (eaten by varmint) and in pot on deck with approximately 5 hours sun per day. Despite low sun, sprawling plant with prolific production of 4 pounds of 0.5 oz black cherry tomatoes . Outstanding flavor. My favorite.

Indeterminate, regular leaf, large plant produces lots of 1-2" purple-brown cherries. Great taste that reminds me of larger beefsteak types. Mid season, 75 days.

History

  • Developed by the late Vince Sapp, husband of Linda Sapp, who owns Tomato Growers Supply , from a natural cross. Released in 2003. The exact parentage of Black Cherry has not been shared.
  • Two commercial sources were noted for 2004 in the Garden Seed Inventory 6th edition but this variety has rapidly gained renown in the past few years and is much more widely available now.
