75 days. Deep rosy-purple little cherries are very uniform at 1-inch in diameter, sweet and juicy, but with rich “old-fashioned” tomato flavor. Crack resistant fruits are produced non-stop on trusses of 6-8 fruits; plants are vigorous and will get as large as 5 feet in height, so staking is a must. “Chocolate Cherry” is great for markets—an elegant little addition to this color class!

What are the pros? Tasty, Uniform, Prolific

What are the cons? Fragile skin, Late to mature

Review:

These are very tasty cherry tomatoes, with a deep rich flavor. They are prolific but later than most others to mature. My only real complaint with these is that the skin is incredibly thin and they burst easily. It is not uncommon to go into the garden and find several burst on the vine or for them to burst as you pick or simply from the weight of each other in the bucket. I solve this by picking a day or two early and laying out in a single layer to finish ripening. Really delicious tomato, and worth the extra care.

What are the pros? Very prolific, crack resistant

What are the cons? Not very purple, nor flavorful

Review:

They yielded quite a bit and we're sturdy plants reaching up to the sky. However the color was closer to the dusky, rather than deep purple or brown. See the tomatoes on the right side of the photo above. I am spoiled with ss 100's and sungolds (I know, I know, hybrids - poo poo) but I am looking for a tasty and very dark purple cherry. I am going to try black cherry and tsungshigo this year and I will report back. P.S. I know what I'm doing in the garden, I grow 50 tomato plants a year and sell twice as much. I have full sun, metered drip irrigation and we'll amended soil. P.P.S. Any ideas for your best tasting cherry size tomatoes please post them on your reviews. Thanks.

What are the pros? Sweet Flavor

What are the cons? they were coming out of my ear

Review:

I fell in love with this tomato! It was the first cherry that produced, and the last tomato in the whole garden to give up the ghost! So sweet, wonderful flavor. Only problem is that we just had so dang many we didn't know what to do with them! We had cucumber and tomato salad everyday thi last summer n fall, I made superb marinara and salsa with them. Even filled ziplocks up with them and filled with water and froze them, they are still pretty good in raw salsa now that it is winter. Will be planting these ever year, just not s many plants, as they as super prolific!

What are the pros? easy to grow, quite prolific

What are the cons? lasted quite a while on vines

Review:

I am glad to find someone who is carrying them. We grew some 2 years ago and they were one of the best small tomatoes we have every had, friends and family raved about them too (if we shared any). We couldn't find any last year so tried some others that weren't as good. Will definitely be ordering some soon.
