Black Cherry

Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

75 Days to Harvest 

Good container variety

Largish cherry tomato

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


A delicious cherry tomato. It has the deep rich flavor of all black tomatoes in a perfect bite size.  They make a wonderful snack for tiny gardener helpers!! Black cherry tomatoes take a little longer to ripen than other cherry tomatoes, but are well worth the wait.  They make a delightful addition to salads.


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
