This truly black cherry tomato was bred in Florida by the late Vince Sapp. Pick loads of these perfectly round, dark fruits with rich, sweet, dynamic flavor from just one plant. Great for shish-kebabs, salads (they’re striking!), or just eating in the garden. Vines are quite vigorous, so use a tall cage. Open-pollinated.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.

    Unique tomatoe, slightly sweet flavor. : This tomato will produce fruits about 1″ to 1.5″. The fruits start out green and turn dark chocolate brown. I grew it on the deck in a 30″ pot about 24″ deep and staked it with a bamboo cage. Got lots of compliments on the plant…..very pretty. I will definitely grow this one again.

    Great, when you get what you want.: I grew these for the first time last year, and I really loved them. I shared some with neighbors, and they thought very highly of them as well. So this year I bought another one, and after a few months of waiting for the plant to mature and produce, it turns out that it was mislabeled, and is some sort of grape tomato. While I give the Black Cherry tomato 5 stars, I give Bonnie Plants 1 star for a lack in quality control. The same thing happened last year when I thought I was buying a Mr. Stripey tomato, and it turned out to me something else.

    Beware: Bought 4 Bonnie black cherry plants this year and all 4 are producing a small orange pear to plum shape tomato. BEWARE these are not true to the label.

    great variety : i love these little guys.. the taste is very unique kind of a sweet ,smokey finish and very juicy.. we got a lot of rain this year in new jersey so the plants grew very tall. I'm gonna say around 7' tall.. had a heck of a time supporting them on the fly, tomato plants don't normally get so tall here in jersey.. over all i think i will grow these again next year..

    Tasty: A tasty, fun tomato for salads or snacking, but mine were not round like a cherry tomato, they were oblong like grape tomatoes.

    Disappointed, Mislabeled :(: Planted 1 of these last year. They were awesome! Searched for them this year, bought two plants. Now growing they are both mislabeled. I have some kind of grape tomato, and I can't even get them to ripen. So sad.

    :

    Neither a black nor a cherry tomato?: I bought several of these plants with the Bonnie brand on them from my local Wal*Mart, which was probably a bad idea in the first place, but the yield was a bland-tasting, pear tomato-shaped fruit that was distinctly two-toned even when at the peak of ripeness.

    Super good!!: Our neighbor's plant was large and loaded. We had a so-so tomato year in Idaho this season but these little guys were absolutely wonderful. Better than candy!
