Tomato, 'Black Cherry'


These are so outrageously good that I remember, during a summer harvest, debating whether or not we would damage our credibility as a seed company if I suggested Black Cherry to be superior in flavor to Sungold - an inflammatory statement if there ever was one! I wasn’t the only one to think so either… It certainly proved itself as a real winner in our mixed cherry pints for market. Very prolific and wildly vigorous plants produce sprays of medium size cherries with a really interesting speckly purple color. The fruits are very juicy and sweet with a terrific and almost fruity flavor. Give them good support. Indeterminate.

Growing Info

SOWING:

Sow 4-7 weeks before your last frost date.

Transplant out after danger of frost (50+F nighttime temps).

Note: Don't start too early or plants will be leggy and root-bound! Tomatoes do well in clay to loam soils. 

PLANTING DEPTH:

1/8-1/4"

SPACING:

18" spacing in rows 5' apart.

EMERGENCE:

10-14 days @ soil temp 70-85F

LIGHT:

Full sun

FERTILITY:

Medium-Heavy. Prefers well-drained, well-balanced fertile soil with a pH between 6.0-7.5. Note that excess Nitrogen will encourage foliage, not fruit! Low calcium and irregular watering will result in blossom end rot.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

Row cover may be used for extra warmth and possible earlier fruit set.

Irregular watering can result in blossom end rot.

Plant deeply to encourage healthy root structure.

Indeterminate varieties may benefit from pruning suckers to encourage air flow, plant health, and energy towards plant top and fruit.

Trellis! We really like the Florida weave.
