Ratings & Reviews

Tomato- Black Cherry

Best tomatoes I've grown this season! Mine aren't as dark coloured as the pictures - they look more green (yes - even when ripe). But the flavour is amazing, quite sweet. The perfect snacking tomato. Germination was a little bit slow, but worth waiting for.

These are big ‘cherry’ tomatoes!! Beautiful dark burgundy with faint green streaks, no pests and very sweet. My nephews pop them straight into their mouths like cherries!
