   Beautiful Fruit Exceptional Produce, October 11, 2016  By Kim 
These Black Cherry Tomatoes were so pretty I hated to see them go. Their flavor was delicious as well. By far my favorite variety. They grew well in our raised bed garden here in metro Atlanta. I will definitely buy these next year.
   Give It A Try!, October 11, 2016  By Ron Jones 
ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!! The best bite size tomato we have ever tasted...AND...our friends here in the Sacramento CA area all say the same thing!!........GROWS WELL from the BOTTOM of a HANGING used and empty KITTY LITTER plastic bucket suspended from our patio roof eave.....hooked to a drip system meager sprinkler & watered daily. Actually, I put one on top and one on the bottom.....give it a try!!
   Delicious!!, October 11, 2016  By Deidra 
I grew these on the back porch in an Earthbox. I planted them at the beginning of May and they are still going strong-it is September 5. My boyfriend said they taste like plums.

Easy to grow, prolific and rich, dense tomato taste. I thought I'd never find a cherry I love more than Sungold, but these have neighbors lining up with outstretched hands.
   Great Taste!, October 11, 2016  By Dianne 
These mini purples are delicious and because of the color a great novelty - makes your salads look gourmet. Prolific producer - will use a cage next year because it is very bushy. Did well in Atlanta area during low rain season with drip watering.
   Wow, October 11, 2016  By Drew 
This was my first year growing Black Cherry tomatoes and the plant was MASSIVE. It was easily 8 feet tall, I wouldn't be surprised if it was 9+ feet when laid out. It was a heavy producer all season long straight through to November. Region 7a.
   Awesome, October 11, 2016  By Brandi
