Matt’s Wild Cherry tomato
If you’re looking for a small cherry tomato plant that produces countless fruit, I highly recommend growing Matt’s Wild Cherry!
Originating in Hidalgo, Mexico, this variety is very similar to the wild tomato plant. Flavour is sweet and very juicy. Skin is firm, but thin.
Once Matt’s Wild Cherry establishes itself in the garden, it will go wild! Plants grow abundantly, producing no end of fruit trusses of tiny red tomatoes until frost. In my garden, this variety showed moderate resistance to Late Blight, where the bottom half had succumbed to the disease, while the upper half continued to grow without trouble.
Be sure to pick fruit regularly and especially before a rain, as the variety may be prone to cracking from excess water.
Start tomato seeds indoors a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks before the final frost date. Please refer to my Seed Starting Calculator for specific planting dates for your planting area.
Tomatoes grow best in full sun and require consistent moisture, in order to avoid blossom end rot.
Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed. Space your plants at least 2 to 3 feet apart, depending on how well you stake them. Stay on top of removing sucker stems.
Plants are indeterminate and require proper staking in order to support tall vines. Remove suckers to encourage growth of the main central stem.
Days to Maturity: 55 to 60
Packet: 25 seeds
