Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Brown Cherry (TN SA A) - sliced fruit. 2013-08-22.


Indet. but relatively compact plants with regular leaf. Fruits are oval shaped, up to 2" long, beautiful brown/chocolate color, with dark green shoulders, with dry flesh. I am not sure why this tomato was called a 'cherry', it is actually a small plum. Best for canning or marinating whole, but also good in salads. Good keeper.

Seed source:

1. Andrea Saylor, Tennessee (TN SA A) 07
2. Blue Ribbon Tomatoes 09 / Maria Stenger, Kentucky (KY ST M)

Year grown: 2013

Location: Zone 7b, PNW, Anmore, BC, Canada (760 ft above sea level)


  • This variety was offered by Heirloom Tomatoes , who provided no original name or description for it.
  • Tatiana's note: I suspect that this variety can be a known variety 'Chernyi Mavr', as both the plants and fruits look identical.
