75 days. Indeterminate. Here’s a new, small cherry variety from Brad Gates, Wild Boar Farms. Very dark purple color, which means it’s super-rich in anthocyanins. Unripe, the fruits are a glowing amethyst purple. At maturity they turn deep red where the fruit was shaded; the areas that received intense sunshine are a purple so deep it’s almost black! The flavor is intensely fruity, and sugar-sweet! Plants are very productive, yielding all season in elongated clusters that look so beautiful. A new favorite here at Baker Creek!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Bland flavor

Review:

I grew 9 varieties of tomato this year and was really looking forward to these for the kids, but both kids and adults rated these 7th or 8th in flavor of the 9 varieties. They are prolific and pretty but even our chickens/ducks didn't want to eat them (neither did the wild birds) and we stopped picking them altogether by mid-August. Won't grow again.

What are the pros? Compact Plant

What are the cons? Too long to ripen, not sweet

Review:

I'm really shocked at how many good reviews this cherry tomato has received. The plant was a healthy, compact plant but the tomatoes took way to long to ripen, compared to my other heirloom cherry tomatoes. The flavor was horrible. Two plants were planted in full sun, in different parts of my garden. They got lots of TLC. Very disappointing, for me. I have a small garden and I really regret giving this tomato 2 spaces there.

What are the pros? Very Productive

What are the cons? Not as tasty as I wanted

Review:

Very easy to grow large and bushy plant. Great germination rate. This was the first tomato to ripen for me this year. The fruits are very pretty and a great conversation piece. The taste is pretty darn good like you would expect from any home grown tomato but it is not as good as I had anticipated.

What are the pros? very high resistance to blight

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is a fast-growing, vigorous, bushy plant with a purple cast to its leaves and stems. The plant is sturdy, and possibly one of the most beautiful plants I have ever grown. I started the seed late (July 8th) and transplanted to a large (10 gal) pot with good potting soil when 4 inches tall. I have never seen a tomato grow so fast- it was flowering in just a few weeks time and is now 3 feet tall and covered with hundreds of deep purple fruits that resemble black marbles as well as hundreds more flowers. I have yet to get a ripe fruit, and may have to protect from frost soon. We lost all of our tomatoes in the ground and in pots to late blight this year, but this one keeps trooping along with no sign of the disease, despite the cool, wet mornings and evenings. A real conversation opener too. This is a plant I would definitely grow again!
