Cherry Bomb Tomato ( 64 days, Organic, F1 Hybrid )

4

Indeterminate

Classically full flavored, sweet but balanced, cherry tomatoes with late blight protection. What drew us into offering this variety besides the disease protection and great taste was it beautiful, deep vivid red clusters. Produced high yields of uniform fruits, that were an ease to harvest, and extremely vigorous; still growing strong at the end of September and would keep going if it weren’t for the frost. A hybrid with quality flavor, and a solid tomato to grow for a successful crop. Bred by our neighbors Johnny Selected Seeds.  Late Blight Resistance.     10 seeds  

 

 

PLANTING:

Germination-7-14 Days

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest- When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips-Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

The absolute BEST cherry Tomato I have ever grown

I had been growing Tomatoberry cherry tomatoes for a few years and thought they were great. But these 'Cherrybomb' were larger, sweeter, and extremely prolific. The plant lasted until the very end of my garden season. This one is a 5 star winner!!!

Best tomatoes I've ever grown

I grew four of these tomato plants on tall trellises in a small garden without any pruning (I normally sucker tomatoes with larger fruit). The yield has been tremendous (1-2 quarts a week since mid-July) and the plants still look great in mid-September without spraying of any sort and only light fertilization with fish emulsion. In addition to being blight-resistant I've also found them to be very split-resistant with only occasional splitting after very heavy rains. The taste is very nice - tomato-y without the excessive sweetness typical of modern cherry-sized tomatoes. We've enjoyed them raw but I've also made a variety of sauces and salsas that have been delicious, with a notably jammy texture as compared with other fresh tomatoes. Highly recommended - I won't bother growing other types in the future.

Production, resistance, consistency and sweet flavor

This one is a clear winner for us. Red, glossy uniform fruit. Easy to harvest. Sweet flavor, texture isn't mealy. High late blight resistance.

Best of show

I had so much trouble with late blight I tried 7 tomatoes known for late blight resistance this year. Cherry Bomb is the clear winner for me. Less disease and more tomato, and great tasting tomato at that. Granted my other tomatoes were filched by critters far more than I harvested, but somehow these little wonders stayed on vine for me. Matt's wild cherry also came thru, but they are so small they require lots of work to pick enough to make a meal. BTW I also grew Defiant which fared the worst for me. All disease, llittle fruit, and not the best tasting. I guess if I compared to store bought it would be tasty, but I'm spoiled.
