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? Super Taste and keepers
What are the cons? Can be low producing
I've been growing these for 4 years in Missoula. They do have great taste. I have never had them grow to be really huge. The first two years I had some problems with the fruit not setting. I thought this might be a pollination problem. So last year I hand pollinated (just pretentious you are bumble bee and shake the flowers). All the fruit set last year. Because we had a cold spring with a lot of rain, the fruit didn't ripen until late in the summer. But then I had them ripen inside through the beginning of December. I think I'll try drying them this year and would love to have the green tom chutney mentioned in one of the reviews here (too bad they didn't give the recipe).
These do vary in size from golf ball sized to cherry size. They do look brown. But they are incredibly delicious! If your tomatoes don't fit that description then they probably are not black cherry.

What are the pros? Tasty
What are the cons? Small yields
These taste so good but we didn't get many. We had 2 plants but not many tomatoes, especially for a cherry. We would get about a handful every couple days. It was also very late before we started getting any.

What are the cons? DId not germinate
Tried two times to sow but nothing germintated. Was really looking forward to having them this summer but not have to wait until fall. They did send out a new pack because it happend in a few other instances.

What are the pros? Sweet, beautiful
What are the cons? None
Grew these for the first time last year and they were the favorite of the 3 cherry/grape varieties we grew. Sweet, but not too sweet. Quite productive.
