I was impressed with the appearance, productivity, taste and texture of this cherry tomato. Because of my limited garden space, this plant will replace the YELLOW PEAR tomato I've grown for the past two years.

Planted this in my new greenhouse in Central Oregon at the same time as an early girl (both grown from seed). This thing is
about a foot taller now and threatening the top of the greenhouse and it is only June 1 on a VERY cold (record setting) spring year. It is presently setting fruit. Not as many blossoms as other plants this size but despite it not being a resistant variety, it is the healthiest plant in the greenhouse!
Definitely needs to be started indoors in this climate but sure looks great so far.
Now have the first fruit and the taste is great. It has an interesting, almost citrus-like taste at first bite. Great tomato.

My first year with the Chocolate Cherry, and I'm impressed. It was a much hardier tomato plant than most of my other 20+ varieties. and these 1- 1 1/8" cherries taste like a really good old fashion tomato to me. And here near Atlanta, I'm still getting a good harvest. As cherry tomatoes go, the plant gets big and produces a medium crop. The plant in my Earth Box, sitting on a concrete parking area, did the best. My only other Chocolate Cherry plant, in a raised bed, had a smaller crop. I probably only get about 5-6 hours of full sun at either location.
I have read that they easily split like most brown tomatoes, but I don't think I had any to split untill they were way over ripe, so I let them get very mature on the vine, although they seem to ripen well inside the kitchen ok too.
Next year I plan to plant many more of these great tasting tomatoes, and look forward to cutting up a handfull for an interesting Tomato Sandwich : )

Now that I have tried it I can say that it is a great cherry tomato, maybe not as prolific as other cherry tomatoes I grew in the past, but great flavor and interesting color.
I will grow it again next year.

These grew well with a large productive plant. Larger size cherry tomato. Brownish color made my kids not particularly want to eat them because they thought they were "rotten". I would consider them to be a higher acidity than some cherries, but I am partial to yellow and orange tomatoes, which tend to be sweeter and less acetic.
