Cherry Type Tomatoes
Chadwick’s Cherry
80–90 days
Indeterminate
This tomato was developed by the late Alan Chadwick of England. Chadwick was famous in gardening circles for introducing (actually re–introducing) the concepts and practices of French intensive gardening and bio–dynamic systems. These tomatoes are both juicy and prolific. The sweet flavour of the tiny (1.5”) round fruit is considered by some to be the best flavour or medium–sized cherry tomatoes. Great for salads or popping into your mouth.
