Texas Wild Cherry

  • TM012
  • Solanum lycopersicum.  All we really know is that seed of this tomato was collected from a patch of apparently "wild" tomatoes in southern Texas. Sprawling plants produce tons of small, tasty, cherry-type tomatoes. Early-maturing and very productive! One of the stars of our 2012 tomato trials in Patagonia, Arizona (4000'), they've also been super productive in our 2021 Tucson grow-out.  From our Seed Bank Collection.

    • Approx. 0.1g/40 seeds per packet.
    • Indeterminate.
    • Limit 3 packets.
  • $3.95

Seeds were OK, but…

I grew these tomatoes very successfully in 2022, but since then I have had problems getting them to grow. This is not the seeds fault by any stretch of the imagination, but rather my inability to find a proper medium. I stll have some of my 2022 crop in the freezer. I passed some seeds along to my sister, who is a Master Gardener. I’m sure she will have better results! I will definitely order again next year .

If you wanna grow tomatoes without a struggle

I was burned out fighting weather, birds, pests in Phoenix. Decided to give these a shot, since they were supposedly found growing in the wild. Easy sprouting, delicious tomatoes, low bird problem (the sprawling helps hide the fruit from the birds), low pest problem. They lasted better into the Phoenix summer than any tomatoes I've grown before, although they did give up the ghost finally when temps last summer went over 115 . . . and just STAYED there (stewed tomatoes, anyone?). But they reseeded, I've got lots more plants, TONS of fruit, and just hoping they beat the heat for ripening. I've already harvested a handful, crossing fingers for rest of fruit.

I've learned from Native Seed/SEARCH how to grow veggies (okay, fruit in this case) WITH our climate, instead of fighting it and am finding it much less frustrating.

Really enjoys the heat

I purchased this cultivar a few years ago. I've been planting them in raised beds for three seasons.
The first year I planted, I put them in a little late. I didn't expect much but it was only a few seeds wasted. However, in the most intense part of Central Texas summer, it's sprouted and continued growing and proliferating until the first hard frost.
If direct seating, and enjoys a slow growth cycle until it really begins to heat up. I've even experimented with transplanting the seedlings at depth while they mature. That seemed to work well. Tasty, prolific and extremely easy to grow. If a fruit drops you will get multiple seedlings in that spot every time. Really enjoy this cultivar.

So far so good

All seeds planted germinated and have grown well. Blossoms have set and small bunches are starting to form. Looking forward to harvest.

Easy to start

Very easy to grow, my grandpa had them in south tx, I ordered seeds from here and they are the same.
