75 days. Beautiful black cherries look like large, dusky purple-brown grapes; they have that rich flavor that makes black tomatoes famous. Large vines yield very well; very unique and delicious

What are the pros? sweet, firm texture

What are the cons? not incredibly prolific

Review:

This is by far my favorite cherry tomato to grow. This is the second year I've grown black cherry and it'll always have a place in my garden. With many cherry tomatoes I find them to be very watery. Black cherry is the sweetest of all the cherry tomatoes I've grown, and has a nice firm texture that holds up well after grilling, and in salads.

What are the pros? flavor, appearance

What are the cons? inconsistent yield

Review:

Their size does make them a bit large for a 1-bite cherry tomato, but other than that, there's nothing not to like. I probably had about 8 of these in the in the garden, and some produced heavily and others not so much. I'm going to seed save from the heavy producers, and I'm curious why the inconsistency, but the flavor makes it all worth it. Best tasting tomato ever for me.

What are the pros? No cracking, best flavor

What are the cons? none at this time

Review:

Of all the Baker Creek tomato varieties planted this year Black Cherry was the first cherry type to form (next to Principe Borghese, Roma and a few others) with all varieties were planted at the same time. Seeds bought from Comstock Ferre, packed for 2014 with a 100% germination rate. True to indeterminate cherry types this variety grows very tall, perhaps twice the height of a standard tomato cage with long vines reaching out to neighboring plants in all directions. Allow plenty of room for this variety, about 3 feet per plant if space permits. Once fantastic thing about Black Cherry is its ability to ripen all of the tomatoes on one branch at the same time, with uniform alternating nodes that are amost picture-perfect. In my experience other cherry varieties tend to ripen on a single branch at different rates but not Black Cherry. Just like one would expect from a purple variety the flavor is excellent, with an old-time tomato taste that can't be purchased at the store. A keeper!

What are the pros? The taste and yield

What are the cons? only one plant produced

Review:

The summer of 2014 I planted 40 tomato plants - 20 varieties. My friends and I did taste tests all summer and black cherry won the tests time and again. They have a great tomato flavor with a surprising sweetness at the finish. The plant was easy to grow and had great yeilds. It grew large but not totally out of control like some of the others. I am ordering more seeds to grow more plants next year.

What are the pros? Great Taste

What are the cons? None

Review:

I tried these on a lark this Spring because I had room for a couple more plants. They are very tasty. Sweet, meaty and firm flesh. They also seem to last quite a while on the counter in a bowl, provided I don't eat them all.
