Does anyone know if black cherry tastes anything like black plum? I grew the black plum last season (it was labeled from the nursery as black cherry), but I was not a fan of the flavor at all. My partner didn't like it, either, but my mother loved them.

In my experience most black tomatoes have a similar flavor, so if you didn't like Black Plum, you probably won't like Black Cherry either. But since I have never tried Black Plum, I can't say thins with certainty. Why not see if you can pick up some Black Cherry tomatoes or standard black slicing tomatoes like Cherokee Purple or Black Krim at a farmer's market and see if you like how they taste?

Don't know which varieties these are but I think they are Rapunzel. In any event they are delicious and bountiful.




We have more cherry tomatoes than we can say grace over but they won't go to waste. That's for sure.

Cherry tomatoes are the garden equivalent of kudzu (but a lot tastier!).

I don't dare eat them. Is something wrong with them?
Golly we have purple cherry tomatoes at our farmers markets right now and they are charging more than regular tomatoes. Our Sam's club has mixed colored cherry tomatoes that are really fun to use. They taste like any other tomato and yes, the purple ones do seem to keep a little bit green. Yours sound fine to me.
