What are the pros? Prolific, easy to grow
What are the cons? Large for a cherry
This was my first year for the fox cherry. The seedlings transplanted without stress into the garden and survived not only a couple of cold snaps, but an unusually cold, wet beginning to the growing season. The plants themselves grew quite large and produced a ton of lovely little tomatoes that were perfect to eat fresh. The one down side was that these jewels were a little large for our tastes in salads, but were perfect to roast up and puree into sauce. The sauce has a bright, fresh tomato flavor that we love on pasta and pizza. Unfortunately, the cold, wet weather we had early on set us up for blight. We had to pull our tomato plants early and didn't get a full harvest. Even with our limited harvest, we harvested enough tomatoes to make enough sauce to see us through most of the winter.
