MATTS WILD CHERRY TOMATO (55 days)

9

Indeterminate. Wild is the operative word here. Strong vines are overwhelmed by an abundance of small cherry tomatoes - hundreds of them. The flavor is intense and they seem impervious to almost any disease you can name. They are also early and will continue to yield well up to the first frost. We get this seed from the folks at High Mowing Seed Company in Vermont. 25 seeds.

PLANTING:

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.

Matt's Wild Cherry Tomato

This is a tomato I have grown before and we love them. They are very small compared to other varieties, but their flavor is huge. They are also quite prolific.

winter sowing tomatoes

Used winter sowing for the Matts Wild Cherry tomato as an experiment. So far no germination (sown in March 2018), but it is a little early. I hope to see something in the next couple of weeks.

Best cherry EVER

I grow these every year-won't bother trying a different cherry. Delicious, dependable-not bothered much by diseases that plague my other tomatoes.

Greatest little tomato I ever eaten

I grew this using Jefferson's trellis style. Wow were they ever sweet and great. They never even made it to the salad.

treat like a ****, will love you forever!

I planted 3 of them last year. A horrid spring managed to **** two. The lone survivor produced so many tiny tomatoes it was unreal! It escaped the garden plot and started growing along the side of the house. No need to replant this year, since I know I missed some. Skins are delicate, so eat right away, they won't hold long after you pick them. This is the perfect cherry tomato if you have toddlers.
