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 in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was the "wild-child" in my 2014 Provo, Utah garden! I wish I had given this tomato plant more room - it grew to be huge! It took a while to get going and was most productive after the high heat of summer passed, and then it really produced. These dusky brownish-rose beauties were just delicious - very sweet, but not bland as some sweet tomatoes can be. The whole family loved them! We used them in different types of salads, in tacos, and mostly for snacking. One plant produced plenty for fresh eating for family and friends. I will be looking for this winner at Home Depot to grow again for my 2015 garden. Hope there are still some left to buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely delighted with this healthy, productive plant. I purchased it from my feed store, planted it in a container, used no pesticides and it is bearing tons of fruit! These cherry tomatoes take longer than others to ripen- be patient, the pay-off is wonderful! My yellow pear tomato plant was attacked by aphids and died- this one stayed healthy. I will be looking for this one next year!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1st Year, nicely surprised. Wife and I bought it on a whim. She's got to be careful about tomatoes as too much acid throws her stomach in circles, so she's always cautious about cherry tomatoes. Planted in a container, and it's over 6' tall. Covered in fruit, maturing very nicely, but the earliest fruits have been outstanding in taste. Will become a garden staple if everything stays true to course.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite! Lowes had only one plant. It was doing great while we were in FL, had to leave it with friends--Lucky them. I hope they will be available in Massachuetts, namely Cape Cod, Wareham area. Please, please! Couldn't find them last year, but previously had a prolific crop that everyone looked to replicate. Help! We need them! Many thanks. Jeannie

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I grew this tomato last year in a container and it just wasn't that great. The taste wasn't consistent. A few were quite good, but most of them were disappointing. There were probably 20 tomatoes from the whole season, but that might have been the fault of the container, which was probably 4ish gallons. I'm trying something else this year.
