Hi Guys ,
Just received the seeds from courier services after
Clearing from customs officials, I would certainly give a try to find out how good Heirloom seeds are by myself.

Good luck with those and do let us know how they turn out.
It is interesting to hear about gardening in different parts of the world.

Hi Thanks,
To day opened the Black Cherry Red Tomatoes seed pack and shared with a female grower/vendor ,around 30 seeds and a co worker another 25 seeds.
Also sowed 14 seeds in 8"pot, I am exited about heirloom seeds, however we have lots rain here and it may not the right time to grow any vegetable and would keep you all posted about the progress.
Prabhi S.
note: the seeds are from Mountain Valley.

I have Black Cherry plants growing. They are flowering now, but it has been very warm here so I wonder if they will produce in this heat.
I am expecting that they will produce later in the season as it cools off.

Hi to all,
Adding an image of my "Black Cherry Tomatoes " plants seeds are from Moutain Valley seed co.
They are 34 days old .
Would plant them during week end, here it has been raining heavily and do not want to loose the plants.

I have not used any chemicals on them,as for fertilizer is concerned I have used "Kisanic" organic plant growth enhancer @ 1/2 t.s.f / gallon.
Seedlings looks healthy.

Hi ,
My Black Cherry Red Tomatoes plants gave me two,an inch size fruits, out of my 14 plants.I think know the reason for that is lack of enough sunshine,also there is lots of Rain for weeks.
The fruit colour is rich, but not Black.Ate both Tomatoes they were sweet like honey.decided to save the seeds.
That is my first experience with Heirloom seeds.

Those turned out better than mine did.
Mine flowered later and the fruit was a grey colour and not black. I had lots of other tomatoes.

Hi ,
My Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes plant # 2 in a pot bore 30 to 40 fruits but the sad story is something is eating by entire fruit minus skin, may they are birds may be Tangiers
20.12.17
My Cherry Tomatoes plants are coming to the end of their life, the funny thing
is plants are really dry, has about 30 fruits no body is eating them ( meaning insects or birds) and was able to save seeds for future . If you ask would I grow again yes I would.

You probably need the type of netting used on fruit trees.
Put stakes in the ground , higher than the tomatoes, to droop it from .
