These are the best cherry tomatoes I have ever tasted. This is my second year growing them. First year we didn't prune at all and they TOOK OVER. This year we have tried to keep up on it, but they keep growing nonetheless. Not that I'm complaining, the more fruit the better. If you're trying to save space, this really isn't the best choice but the flavor of these beauties more than makes up for the massive growth.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
