4.5 in. Husky Cherry Tomato

How to Get It

Product Overview

Our Bonnie Husky Cherry Red tomato plant is perfect for a container garden or small space. This super sweet cherry tomato is a best seller because of its flavor, productivity and good looks. The vines are dwarf indeterminate, making them short and husky like a determinate type between 3 ft. and 4 ft., yet they yield clusters of tasty little cherry tomatoes in a small space over a long period of time. The dwarf vines stay neat and compact, but do give the plant a little support on a stake or cage to keep it upright in rain and wind. Plant arrives in a biodegradable pot with a well-established root system and hardened off for easy transplanting in the garden.
  • Cherry tomato perfect for pots

A Winner
I have been growing the Husky Cherry tomatoes since 2009. The are the only tomato I've found that taste like a tomato should. They are also big enough to stuff which is a huge winner for us. As long as I can garden I'll have Husky Cherry in garden.

    BEST THERE IS.
    Have bought these for the past several years and have not been disappointed once. I have never seen such a hardy cherry tomato....anybody can grow these. Best planted in ground, but can be grown in a pot. Pots should be very large...would recommend over 20" at least, otherwise you will have to water constantly.

      Gorgeous plant, tart tomatoes
      The most incredible feature of this plant is it's beauty. It reminds me of a cypress trees shape except more full. The thick canopy of leaves are a gorgeous forest green. I am hoping the pictures I upload will show up so you can see the leaves. The tomatoes grow in clusters. I have heard many reviews and descriptions of the husky cherry red tomato and all of them said that the the tomatoes taste like a tomato should taste and have a perfect balance of tart. I disagree. These cherry tomatoes are tart. They have a tomato flavor that is pleasant, but the tartness is not balanced with sweet or another deep flavor in the flesh. The tomatoes are firm too. They don't get as red as many red cherry tomatoes I have seen. Do I like the fruit? My husband like them and I eat them too. I'm sure they are good for my health. But I don't like such a tart tomato. I won't buy the Husky Cherry red tomato again. But if you like tart tomatoes, this is your plant and it is gorgeous.

          Easy, Prolific, & Tasty
          My Husky Cherry Reds have been happily growing in a 16" whiskey barrel container. This tomato has been extremely easy to take care of. I only pick off the suckers and have pruned the plant once so far this season. Although it's an indeterminate type plant, the plant grows short and bushy, and therefore; I like to keep it pruned to allow good airflow. The plant produces prolifically but I find the skin a little tough to my liking. The taste is pretty good somewhere between a true cherry tomato and a beefsteak.

            Great container tomato for deck or patio
            I bought this as a good sized plant at Home Depot in late May. The container came with a cage but it was quickly clear both were too small for this little tree. I took a risk and replanted into a larger container and am glad I did! The plant is now at 4 feet tall with an insane amount of fruit in various stages of growth/ripening. I've harvested about a dozen so far and they taste have good tomato flavor...not super sweet like come cherry or grape varieties. Great on a salad. Will definitely buy again but would re-pot at the start. Also, for reference, growing on a 4th floor deck with southern exposure in WI.

              Prolific Producer!
              I bought this Cherry Tomato fo one of my container plants. I started with fresh container compost and planted deep. I set up to automatically water every other day and periodically fertilize. Wow! Look at the results.

                Perfect for a fall garden in Tucson, AZ
                I planted this in my herb garden in September and it produced tons of tomatoes all winter long until April, when our temps got into the 90’s. The fruit was sweet and abundant and I had the best harvest I have ever had. Hope I can fin another one this coming sept.

                  Best cherry tomato in my garden this year!
                  Hello. I normally don't ever rate or write reviews on anything but I just thought I would tell a few people about this amazing husky cherry tomato! I am located in Chesterfield, Virginia (zones 7A and 7B). I went with this variety this year (2017) since what I wanted was not available (Sakura organic cherry tomatoes) and boy am I glad I did! Great flavor and wonderful looking, beautiful plant! Although this is a dwarf indeterminate variety, mine has grown 5-6 feet, and it's still growing and bearing lots of clusters of beautiful tomatoes. I picked up 6 plants for my SmartPots, kicking myself now for not getting more. If this variety is available next year, I will be picking up maybe 10-20 plants next year, if not starting these from seed! Very happy with this variety, it's strong, vigorous growth, it's disease resistance, and it's beautiful plant and it's wonderful, juicy, beautiful fruit! Thanks for reading my review!

                    Cherry tomatoes
                    Beautiful little tomato plants. Healthy and ready to plant. They came in their own little 'greenhouse' so were protected very well.
