Chadwick's Cherry Tomato
For many gardeners, this is the one thing that has to be in their garden every year. Bright red cherries are round, on the large side for a cherry, and full of intense flavor. Large vines pump out tomatoes until frost. I have have great luck growing these on a trellis to make a temporary shade arbor over a seat in the garden or on a patio. (not a fancy trellis, just sticks and wire, an old piece of fencing, or a panel of that cedar lathe privacy fence.) These really want to ripen on the vine, and get totally ripe, so wait til they are deep red and have some give to them. I actually had to turn the color saturation DOWN on the picture, they are such a bright red. 80 days. 20 seeds
Alan Chadwick was an inspiring gardener and garden teacher, whose organic, intensive gardens at UC Santa Cruz influenced and trained many of the gardeners and farmers who would go on to create the modern organic movement. In a life of wandering, this tomato always went with him, and it's intense flavor was his example of why homegrown vegetables were worth growing.
