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? Yield, coloration

What are the cons? Could be slightly sweeter

Review:

The yield was great on these with no cracking, when all of our Isis Candy tomatoes split and rot this year. They weren't as sweet as the Isis, but still good. I plan to grow them next year.

What are the pros? Very pretty, great yield

What are the cons? taste

Review:

These were very pretty with an ok taste. Of all the cherry varieties I've grown it was most definitely the prettiest but not the best tasting. The yield was great. Very prolific. They were edible and we ended up using them to make tomato jam. The vines were both red/purple/blue and yellow/purple/blue. Kind of neat. People got a kick out of them. I'm not sure I'll grow again. Maybe one or two plants. But that is probably it.

What are the pros? Actually quite ornamental

What are the cons? very much lacking in flavor

Review:

Grew this variety for the first time this year. Was excited by the prolific fruit sets, however took a long time to ripen and when they finally did was very disappointed by the flavor (or lack of would describe it better). Ended up as food for my chickens and they weren't that wild about it either. Only redeeming value was it was pretty but that's not why I grow tomatos....

What are the pros? Large, productive plants

What are the cons? Little slow to ripen

Review:

This was the first year I grew these tomatoes. The seed germinated well, plants were healthy, and the cherry tomatoes are beautiful. They were a little slower than expected to ripen, but then took off. They were one of the last varieties to succumb to frost, and I was picking large amounts right up to frost. There are indeed very sweet if you wait until they are fully ripe to pick (red underneath, not pink or orange). I will grow them again for personal use, but probably not to sell since I think many people picked them too early and therefore formed a negative opinion of the taste.

What are the pros? Pretty color

What are the cons? Terrible sour flavor

Review:

These tomatoes took quite a while to ripen. They are very pretty on the vine and have lots of phytonutrients and are prolific, but the flavor is horrible. I tore the vines out soon after I realized the flavor wasn't getting any better!
