Want a CHAMPION tomato? Chadwick Cherry is an old heirloom tomato developed by legendary California gardener Alan Chadwick. However, unlike many heirloom tomatoes out there this one PERFORMS. On our organic farm we’ve trialed over 30 heirloom tomatoes and narrowed it down to a very few, and this is one. We also trial them in wet, humid conditions where tomatoes are challenging.
After years of our own selection process for disease resistance, productivity and crack resistance, we now have a CHAMPION tomato. Fruit are very plump cherry tomatoes, but so large they are almost more like small tomatoes and beyond the cherry catregory. They are extremely productive, resilient, disease resistant and full of old fashioned real tomato flavor. It regularly self-seeds and comes up on it’s own next year, with no work. Simply the best cherry tomato. Makes great sauce and ketchup, easy to process. Organically Grown.
Story of this Seed:
