75 days. Here’s a small cherry variety from Brad Gates of 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? good flavor, sweet, thin skin

What are the cons? seems to require lots of heat

Review:

Grew these this year, zone 7b. I like these about the same as sweet millions. They aren't quite as sweet [still pretty sweet], but they have a more complex flavor to them vs raw sugar. The skin melts away in the mouth and they're easy for snacking. The main issue I noticed with them and from the other reviews I'm seeing is that these seem to need some good summer heat before they really start to sweeten up.The first harvest of these made me consider tearing them out since they had almost no sweetness to them. Come the second harvest [once we were consistently in mid 90's ] and I was shocked at how good they were. These things also wanted to vine out everywhere. One of them managed to sneak out a shoot in the back and ended up taking over a chunk of the area surrounding the garden all by itself haha. With proper pruning, they get into a very thick and health looking bush and are prolific. I have added these to my yearly list and will be happily growing them from now on.

What are the pros? beautiful

What are the cons? sour and bitter when purple

Review:

I was so ready to give up on these beautiful purple/green tomatoes. Until recently these were so bitter and sour that I'd spit them out each time I attempted to taste them. However...with our recent 100 degree weather, they turned more red than purple, and that's when they became sweet! I'm not sure I'd recommend them if your area only gets moderately hot and sunny. I think these plants prefer heat waves! Hit or miss, I guess, even for SoCal.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? sweet really? no way!

Review:

Green house grown side by side with my other treasured cherries, I was looking forward to harvest. I don't recall being more disappointed by a cherry tomato. I don't consider these to be sale worthy - not sweet at all!

Review:

I had to write a review for these beauties. This is my second year planting them and they have proven two years in a row to be resistant to late blight. (Zone 6b) We lost our Romas first. Proactive spraying with neem made no difference for them. This plant did not show any signs of blight on the leaves despite the enormous, bushy size of the plant. While we were able to save most other tomato plants, this one is doing the best, by far. I do have a few things I will change for next year though. 1) Taller, heavier and possibly more stakes. One 2"x2"x4' stake was not enough to hold this up. 2) Thin more aggessively. I'm talking bushy. About 5' around. It's difficult to even get to the ripe tomatoes inside the plant. 3) Just one plant is needed to supply three families with cherry tomatoes for the season. This is worth growing simply for the beauty of the fruits although they taste great too!

So sour. Not for shady balcony

What are the pros? Pretty fruit

What are the cons? Bad tomato for the frist time

Review:

100 % germination rate, Easy to grow. It'll need cage and It'll need sunshine. a lot of sunshine. After 40 days it will bear fruits. Then at 55 days, small, coin-size fruit will turns from green to be as same as the picture on this page. Pretty, very pretty. But it tastes so sour and so little tomato flavor. I won't grow this again.
