Tomato Spotlight: Matt's Wild Cherry

Out of all the tomato varieties we're growing this year, Matt's Wild Cherry stands out. It's an heirloom tomato, originating from Mexico. Diminutive in size, it's packed with totally-perfect-umami-tomato flavor. They're perfect for snacking, and we've been popping them into our mouths like candy for weeks. The best part? The plant seems to be yielding a ton, so it seems as though we'll enjoy hundreds and hundreds of these little gems.


  1. Yum, never heard of this variety, it looks yummy. Where do you get the seeds?

  2. I'm in my 3rd year with Matt's Wild Cherry. I've been getting transplants from http://www.verrillfarm.com/ every year and have been looking for a seed source.

    They are prolific and they grow tall. Mine are 6' tall right now. Last year they grew down the row 10' away!

    This and sun gold are my must have cherry tomato types.
