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? Tastes great, heavy producer

What are the cons? No good for super extreme heat

Review:

I planted these in 2015 and then again in 2016. I had 4 plants in 2015 and at the height of production was getting 10-15 tomatoes per day. And they're delicious. Beware, they take a lot of space, can grow 8 foot tall and get very leggy. I planted again in 2016. Now the summers here in New Orleans are oppressively hot and humid. 2015 was the normal misery but not hotter than around 92-94. 2016 was even hotter, it was hitting 95-96. The plants were big and tall and healthy but nary a tomato did I harvest. Maybe those couple of degrees in temperature made the pollen too sticky. I don't know. I got flowers, I tried hand pollinating, but alas, no fruit. When the plants were about 6 inches tall I a brought a few up to my Dad in New York and he had great luck with these on Long Island.

What are the pros? Flavor, easy to grow

What are the cons? Nothing of note

Review:

This was my first foray with heirloom tomatoes and decided to experiment with them in the green house. I planted them in containers in late summer because I'd never tried a second season garden. While they seemed to take forever to harvest, it was well worth the wait. They grew so tall I had to anchor twine to the rafters for extra support after they outgrew their cages! No matter how hot, dry, or humid it got in that greenhouse, the plants were robust and overloaded with fruit (as of December 9th, I am harvesting 10-15 per day per plant). Even the fruits growing along the ceiling are happy. I developed a whitefly problem on a Sweet 100 my mother-in-law purchased at a garden center, but they didn't touch the Black Cherries or any of my other heirloom varieties for that matter. The fruits are deep red to purple with dark green shoulders and very juicy, Most importantly, the flavor is outstanding...the perfect balance of sweet and acidic - reminds me of tomatoes from my childhood.

Review:

Planted one black cherry this year & it was the work horse of my small container garden. I planted in a container next to a 6' tall wall thinking if it out grew the support I gave it, it could use the wall as extra support. Which worked for a while. This plant grew over the top of the wall & back down the other side. I had to rig a platform for it to sit on once it passed 10' long. It produced 10-16 tomatoes a week. Not much for some people but around here it's hard to grow any durning the summer. I will be planting these every year.

What are the pros? Very productive

What are the cons? Easy picking for the squirrels

Review:

Easy to grow. Very prolific. Had to cover plants with deer netting . Squirrels were plucking every tomato off of the vine. Tasty but not as good as some larger dark tomatoes we have had.

Review:

I just harvested our first batch of these - got over 5 lbs! And my husband hasn't stopped snacking on them all day. The flavor is incredible. We have 5 varieties of tomatoes this year, a mix of paste, cherry, grape and slicers, and these have been the first to mature. Our A Grappoli D'Inverno aren't far behind though! The germination rate of the Black Cherries was great, very easy to grow; we were able to transplant about 20 plants in the first week of June and they've all grown like crazy. Every plant is heavy with fruit and very few have split; our summer has been very hot and mostly dry, but when it rains, it's torrential and still only a couple split. Our Amish and Opalka paste are much more prone to splitting. Average fruit weight for us has been 1 oz, almost exactly. We will definitely be growing these again next year!
