High yields of slightly scalloped red cherry tomatoes on vigorous indeterminate plants. The flavor is complex and tomatoey, but not lacking in sweetness. Mark’s Wild Cherry is a great market variety with the ability to set numerous tomatoes that will ripen over the entire season while offering an alternative to the super-sweet flavors that often dominate cherry tomatoes. Open pollinated.
Are you looking for a productive cherry tomato with sharp complex flavors, a plant that sets tons of fruit, and keeps on growing through the summer heat?
You should grow Mark’s Wild Cherry.
Among tomato growers, Matt’s Wild Cherry is known for its prolific fruit set of small cherry tomatoes that ripen early and have a strong tomato flavor.
Although it tastes great and makes a nice conversation piece, Matt’s Wild Cherry plants are difficult to deal with because of the wild vining nature of the plant, and the tomatoes are really small – only about 1/2 inch diameter.
When breeding Mark’s Wild Cherry, our goal was to capture some of the best qualities from Matt’s (like the early fruit set and sharp complex flavors), but increase the size of the fruit and tame the wild nature of the plant a bit so it’s more compact and manageable for the home gardener.
While just as vigorous as Matt’s Wild, Mark’s Wild Cherry has more closely spaced nodes, larger fruit, and much larger sprays of blossoms. This indeterminate tomato goes all season if kept properly fed. This is the tomato to grow if you are looking for a new red cherry standard.
