Blue Berries Tomato

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? Novel, Tiny Size, Delicious

What are the cons? Unruly growth habit

Review:

These tomatoes are tiny, smaller than an actual blueberry. When ripe, they are almost black. Intensely sweet flavor. Excellent for adding to salads or just eating straight from the garden. They also make delightful dried tomatoes; just an hour at 250 renders them into lovely raisin like tomatoes. Plants sprawl and vine and will tangle with nearby plants but are easy to grow. Not terribly productive, but a really intriguing specimen.

What are the pros? Beautiful plant

What are the cons? So-So taste

Review:

I planted 2 of these plants in straw bales. Allow plenty of room for these plants, as they are vigorous growers! The plants are huge and healthy. I ended up with one yellow and one red. The plants with the tomatoes on them are beautiful! The colors are great for photos! The hummingbirds love the cover they provide as well! The blue on the tomatoes pretty much goes away when the fruit is ripe, though it is somewhat hard to tell WHEN it is ripe so it takes longer to pick these plants. I eat them rght off of the vine, and am dehydrating them as well. The taste is ok. I have Black Cherry cherry toms too, and the taste of them is much more desirable than the Blueberries. I will try the blues again next year and see how I feel about them then. They are worth a few tries.

What are the pros? Interesting color

What are the cons? Bland flavor

Review:

I was excited about these little blue tomatoes, but after the summer growing season, I have to say that I am not that impressed with them. I grew these alongside another heirloom called "Black Cherry" and the "Blue Berries" taste very bland in comparison. The coloring is interesting though. I was surprised to find that one of my plants was growing yellow tomatoes, as some of the other reviewers experienced. The yellow ones are much sweeter than the reds and still have the interesting dark markings, so I am going to save some seeds from the yellows and see what happens with those next year.

What are the pros? Prolific producer

What are the cons? Taste is just ok.

Review:

Somewhat mealy, flavor is suitable but nothing special. Plants are sturdy, produce a lot and seem resistant to early and late blight. So if you're looking for a cash cow for a farmer's market, this could be it. As for me, I go through all the trouble I do for superior flavor. Also when they ripen, they are nearly completely red, with just a few wisps of blue on top - if color matters to you.

What are the pros? Productive, taste great

What are the cons? Inconsistent color, fragile

Review:

These sprouted easily and I planted three plants. All have produced well. However two of the plants have only produced yellow tomatoes - these taste milder than the reds, but still good - perhaps this variety isn't ready to sell yet. Also, these split so easily they have been difficult to pick without cracking, in contrast to other cherries I have grown this year and in past years.
