This super sweet cherry tomato is a best seller because of its flavor, productivity, and good looks. If you like to snack on cherry tomatoes, this is a great choice. One of the popular “Husky” series developed especially for home gardens, the plant is stout, dark green and really pretty; it’s one of the prettiest tomato plants that we grow. The vines are dwarf indeterminate, making them short and husky like a determinate type, usually between 3 and 4 feet, yielding clusters of tasty little cherry tomatoes in a small space over a long period of time. Perfect for pots, too. The dwarf vines stay neat and compact, but give the plant a little support on a stake or cage to keep it upright in rain and wind.

Many juicy, sweet cherry tomatoes are borne on vines resistant to verticillium wilt (V) and fusarium wilt (F).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from you can make many with one!: Either I have the most amazing green thumb or anyone can do this? I think the later. I brought this plant home, it was very husky so I cut all the suckers off even though I thought twice. I had some little pots with coir in them, all wet with super nutrient, stuck in those cutting and now I have many plants. This is some of the most fun I've ever had gardening, I didn't even use a rooting hormone. I have been dying to try cinnamon but I forgot to use it. I read it's anti-fungal as well? I will be giving the extras away to all my gal friends. We will let you know about yield later but I will eat my 1st fruits next week. Super beautiful plant. You people do good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We planted one plant for the first time ever. We live in El Paso, Texas. We have three water days a week. The soil had kitchen scraps buried for many years. We put the plant in the ground and 30 to 45 days later we added steer manure on top of the dirt. That's all we did, we did not remove crotch buds, didn't stake or cage the plant. This plant took over the yard, it grew to 10 square feet. The harvest was very big. The total for 2015 was 3697 tomatoes. This plant is a producer and they taste as good as any bigger tomato.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live in an apartment in Florida and have this sitting just outside my screened in patio. I am completely astonished by how tall this plant is. My plant is so tall no tomato cage has been tall enough to support it that I've had to duct tape my now 6 feet tall and still growing tomato plant to the rain spout. I've had this plant in a pot for 3 months now and have gotten a good amount of tomatoes on it and I still have blossoms popping up!! This is incredible and I'm completely safisfied!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my first season trying these tomatoes. The plants are beautiful. They are full of tomatoes. I have staked most of the vines because of the weight of the tomatoes. I have gotten about 3 pints so far of ripe tomatoes from two plants. I live in New Jersey. We have had a lot of rain this year and a lot of cloudy days. Maybe that has something to do with the period of time it is taking them to ripen. I planted them in May. I expect to have tomatoes into October at the rate the plant is producing. I will try this plant again Lord's willing next season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best plant in the garden!: I have one of these in my huge garden and it is by far the prettiest plant out there! Short, compact, bushy, dark green. But let's talk about the important part: taste. I don't even really like tomatoes much, but these are delicious! Eating some right now, and they are very sweet. Yield is great. It took seemingly forever for the first fruits to ripen but since then I get 5-10 per day. I will definitely buy this variety next year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I haven't gotten to taste these yet since it's still early in growing season but it's mid-June and there are a lot of clusters growing. A couple weeks after planting while still young, my daughter accidentally sent the basketball flying into my plant and split it down the middle. I was so upset because I thought for sure I lost the plant but it continued to grow vigorously and you can't even tell it was broken. I should have tried to reroot the branch I lost into another pot but I didn't think about it at the time. I will definitely be planting this variety next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I buy Bonnie tomato plants every year. I tried this one last year as a smaller tomato plant than the usual Super Sweet 100's that I've been planting for more years than I can remember. The taste is essentially the same on the Husky as the 100's, which is to say very good indeed. I grow all of them in pots on the balcony deck. Limited space allows to plant three of the 100's so I added a smaller pot to grow the Husky in on my outdoor table. It really did well, was a beautiful dark green leaved and had a remarkable yield for a smaller plant. Here's word to the wise. While the plant is stocky with thicker limbs, don't under estimate the weight on those limbs with the abundant load of little tomatoes. Be sure to stake and cage this one just like others. Mine got so loaded with tomatoes it split all the way down to the soil level. It looked like a little tree that had been struck by a big lightening bolt and I thought 'Well that's all for that plant'. But it had tomatoes on it that weren't ready to pick when it split. I braced it up a bit as best I could, kept watering it and feeding it and it continued to live and produce more tomatoes until frost came. So I can attest to a few things on this plant, the tomatoes are very tasty, the yield is very good, and it takes a lot of punishment to do this plant in. I will be doing at least one again this year. And by the way I am in southeast Tennessee zone 7, Foothills to the Smoky Mountain National Park area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving these tomatoes, and so glad I got more than one plant. We've had troubles with birds and squirrels getting tomatoes in the past and, at least, with cherry tomatoes there are many tomatoes so if the critters get a few there are still lots more. The plant is beautifully lush with many leaves and a thick stem. I'm growing in containers, and they are doing quite well. The fruit is very tasty. We could eat lots more of these!
