I don’t have any personal experience in this – my tomatoes aren’t ripe yet – but I have it on good authority that they are really tasty!!!!
I specifically planted only cherry tomatoes this year (I did leave 2 volunteer plants to do their thing – one is producing big tomatoes). I avoided large tomato varieties because I’ve heard that cherry tomatoes aren’t as prone to suffer from the myriad of pests (especially fruit fly) that attack other tomatoes. Last year I got some early tomatoes then the rest were lost (mainly to fruit fly but also to leaf mould). Between the variety I chose and my zealous companion planting of basil and marigold in amongst the tomatoes, I knew I had come up with a cunning plan to gain a great tomato harvest! After closer inspection of the gorgeous tomatoes that cover my healthy plants, I’m not convinced my plan is working; maybe they’re just too tasty for their own good 😦
