Cherry Tomatoes

Sun Sugar for Post

Sun Sugar (Hybrid)
Sun Sugar was named by Sunset magazine as the best tasting tomato in their trials for its sweetness and rich tomato flavor that includes just the right amount of tartness. My three-year-old granddaughter eats them like they were candy. The tomatoes are small but the plants are indeterminate and grow very large so they need support, such as a tall cage. Everyone should plant just one of these each year.

Matt's Wild Cherry

Matt”s Wild Cherry (Mexican Heirloom)

Matt’s Wild Cherry is an heirloom tomato ostensibly based on the original wild tomato plants, acquired by a friend of Doctor Matt Liebman in Hidalgo, Mexico.  These small, 5 gm., cherry tomatoes are deep red, have a tender, smooth texture, and sweet, full flavor. High sugar content. Fantastic in salsa and for fresh eating.

Chocolate Cherry

Chocolate Cherry (Hybrid) 
With a subtle smokiness that all dark tomatoes have, this hybrid cherry tomato rivals the Sun Sugar in taste and beauty. They can be picked ripe off the vine or harvested a couple of days early and left to ripen indoors. They share that rich flavor that all black tomatoes have.

Black Cherry

Black Cherry (Heirloom)

Beautiful black cherries look like large, dusky purple-brown grapes; they have that rich flavor that makes black tomatoes famous. Large vines yield very well.

Green Grape

Green Grape (Heirloom) 
Sister to “Green Zebra”, the flavor may be even better… Rich, sweet and zingy. The fruit are lime-green inside and have chartreuse-yellow skins. They are about the size of a large grape, perfect for salads and snacking. Makes most red cherries taste bland in comparison.  A favorite heirloom of farmers markets and restaurants, thanks to its unique tart flavor and attractive presentation. Originally created by crossing Yellow Pear with Evergreen, Green Grape produces clusters of 6-8 yellow-green 1″ fruits. The soft, fleshy fruit has a delicious yet unusual sweet flavor.
Green Grape tomatoes remain green. They turn a little yellowish when they get ripe. We sold out of them every time we featured them at the Promenade. They are delicious just eaten straight from the vine.
