Are all Cherry tomatoes indeterminate?

(In particular, the packaging on Burpee's SuperSweet 100 hybrid cherry tomato does not specify whether the vine is determinate.)

Thanks.

Not all cherry-type tomato plants are indeterminate. For instance, the Patio Hybrid 'Tumbler' is a determinate plant with 'cherry-sized' tomatoes. If a plant is determinate, the Burpee catalog will include the word 'determinate' in the description of the plant. Otherwise, you can expect an indeterminate growth habit from the tomato plant. Your Super Sweet 100 tomato plant is indeterminate and will continue to blossom and produce fruit right up until frost.
