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 Surprisingly long season.: My 4 plants produced into early November 2012 for Zone 7b where my last harvest was 30 before the frost hit. They were planted in a raised garden, south facing. I was happy with the size and volume of the tomatoes. Juicy and full of flavor. I will definitely plant this variety again this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and plentiful: This is my first time growing and I'm very happy with the results. I live in New England and will be sad when the first frost hits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cherry Tomato: Couldn't wait for them to come in. When they did they were plentiful but I must admit they tasted so good that very few made it into the house. Nothing like a sun warmed ripe tomato.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing yield and taste: Awesome plant. We bought this from our garden center this year for the first time. Tomatoes were everywhere! We couldn't keep up with harvesting them all season. It is the end of October and had our first freeze in Maryland. The plant finally died off but we still have at least 100 tomatoes still on the plant that will still ripen. One plant fed several families all summer. Can't say enough about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are fond of this great potato leaf tomato. Some of mine got 1 1/2" to 2" across. My 3 and 4 yr old great grandsons also enjoy them every visit. Mine beat early ones to ripen . I started them in 5 gal. buckets and left a few in them for the deck. A couple were put in cloth grocery bags and all done well . At the top of my must have for this season .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will be my 4th or 5th year getting these. I love them as a hanging basket off my rails in my back patio. Perfect size, and always plenty of fruits. Really resistant plant compared to others I have bought in the past.

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 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!

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 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 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 They are tough little plants. Easy to grow. I had them in hanging baskets one year and had big bowls of little tomatoes all summer from two baskets. Every year since i get at least 5 of these. The fruit is delicious just for snacking. My husband absolutely loves these. They almost never make it to the salad bowl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As I live in an Apt, I have to grow in pots and containers. This is one of the best tomato type I have seen. I got a lot of fruit off the three plants that I had.

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 4 out of 5 by from The only sunny space I have for veggies is in containers on my patio. I'm so happy I discovered this tomato, an indeterminate that is compact enough for container growing. Good flavor and yield. I have grown it several years now with good results.
