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

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.

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

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.

    Suckers, suckers, and more suckers

    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.

    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.
