Black Cherry Tomato
Black Cherry Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) This heirloom cherry is thought to be native to a relatively small area of the Crimean Peninsula in Southern Ukraine. These vines will fill your buckets with cherry sized, dark-purple sweeties! Our three girls sold these in massive quantities when we ran a market garden many years ago. I think the Black Cherry sales paid for their first semester of University! An indeterminate vine that grows vigorously, producing heavy clusters of firm and juicy snacks throughout the growing season. Highly nutritious and addictive!
