Fox Cherry Tomato | Hudson Valley Seed Company | Organic Seeds
Perfect, plump, salad-sized red tomatoes.
Fox Cherry Tomatoes grow on big, rangey vines typical of most cherries. Unlike most cherry tomatoes, the fruits are large enough to use as regular tomatoes--the 2 inch tomatoes can be sliced into small rounds, or quartered, or chomped whole in single mouth-filling bites. Cherry tomatoes are more disease-resistant than standard varieties; Fox outlasted all other tomatoes on our farm during the dismal blighty conditions of 2009 and survived 2011's wet season. We are grateful! Fox Cherries fill our pots time and time again, allowing us to squeeze out a couple shelves of canned quarts each season. A good combination of quantity, quality, and reliability, Fox does not disappoint.

Indeterminate. Sow indoors 3-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant after frost into good garden soil. Provide support for these tall, rangey vines. Prune after they've been in the ground for about 3 or 4 weeks to decrease soil-foliage contact, increase air flow around leaves, and establish sturdy structure.
