Product Details

For a long season of tiny (5/8" to 3/4"), red Tomatoes with full, definitely sweet flavor, try 'Matt’s Wild Cherry.' It is so named because the seeds originally came from Hidalgo in Eastern Mexico, where the plants grow wild. An early maturing Cherry Tomato variety perfect for fresh eating and salsa. 60 days to maturity. Indeterminate.

All of our Tomatoes are grown from non-GMO seed. The stocky seedlings are grown and shipped in 1 pint pots, so the plants you receive have strong, well-developed root systems.

Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: Georgia, Texas, Maryland, Nevada, Montana, North Carolina, New Jersey.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Space Hog

I ordered this because it was rated best tasting cherry. This plant is the biggest space hog,bar none! I will never grow again. The fruit is VERY SMALL. And no better tasting than conventional supermarket .I will stick to my sweet 100, and supersweet 100. They are consistent in flavor and fairly well behaved growth wise. I cannot emphasize the unruly growth. Buyer beware.

I am sorry you are not pleased with the taste of this tomato Bonnie and you were also not expecting the variety to grow as large as it has even though it is an indeterminate variety. I will be contacting you via email regarding compensation.

My First White Flower Purchase

This was my first order from White Flower and I will truly admit I was a bit nervous whether I would receive a tiny growth tomato (Like some mail order sites) or a wilted plant as a result of shipping trauma. To my very pleasant surprise I received neither. It was a wonderfully sized growth and in great condition but looking for a nice drink after its journey from Vermont to Michigan. It's too early to comment on its' production or hardiness but I am pleased to have received this desirable variety in such great condition to give it a try. More comments regarding its' growth and taste perhaps in the Autumn. Four Stars for a super beginning, perhaps 5 after I taste it later.......

Easy seedlings second year!

This plant grows in cooler coastal area of Zone 10, Sunset zone 23/24. It was a terrible summer for tomatoes over in coastal California and this one did quite well and produced a lot of very small tomatoes beautiful in salads as decoration or for snacking. As a bonus, a few fell to the ground and I have about 20 seedlings growing in the same 16 inch pot! I can't wait to see how they do this year. I think it does well because it's close to a "wild" tomato... All the rest of my tomato plants barely produced fruit. I also gave one to another friend and she grew it on a trellis near her back door and it did wonderfully. She is used to own a restaurant, shops at farmer's markets and the local organic co-op and she thought this was one of the best tomatoes she had last summer!

A daily treat of small red beauties

Care of Plants On Arrival - 

Your plants have just spent up to 3 days without light or water and may have yellow leaves or show evidence of wilting. Through years of shipping experience, we have found that more than 98% of these plants will survive and thrive if you follow the simple care instructions below.

1. Please take your plants out of the shipping box as soon after their arrival as possible, taking care not to damage any stems or leaves as you free the plants from the cardboard packaging.

2. If the soil is dry, water gently but thoroughly from above or set the pot in a saucer of water for an hour or so -- just long enough for the soil in the pot to become thoroughly moist, but not soggy.

3. Place your plants in bright but indirect light indoors or, if temperatures permit, outdoors in the shade, sheltered from the wind. Don't put your plants in full sun right away because their leaves are tender after the trip and could be burned (sunscalded) or fall off if exposed to too much sun too soon. Allow your plants to adjust gradually over the next few days to increasing amounts of sunlight.

4. We've tried to time the shipping of our young plants so that they arrive at or near the frost-free date in your climate zone. If, however, the weather is still raw and a frost seems likely, transplant your plants into larger pots, taking them outside during the day when the weather is mild and bringing them in whenever frost or blustery cold weather threatens. Young plants are more tender than mature plants, and even if the last spring frost is already past, near-freezing temperatures and cold spring winds are capable of killing your new plants. Expose your young plants to outdoor conditions gradually, giving them a chance to harden off before they're planted out. When the weather does settle and both days and nights become reliably mild (night-time temperatures should remain above 50°F), then it's time for planting out.

Planting out: When the weather is warm and settled, choose a planting location in full sun with rich, fertile soil and good drainage. To reduce soil-borne disease problems, plant tomatoes, eggplants, and peppers where you haven't grown them or potatoes in the past 3 years. Dig a hole that will generously accommodate the plant's root ball, and mix compost or aged manure and a handful of low-nitrogen, organic fertilizer into the planting hole. If the weather is hot and sunny, plant in the cool of morning or wait until late afternoon to minimize stress.

To remove a plant from its pot, flip the pot over, tap on its bottom, and slip the plant out. Do not pull the plant out by its stem. Loosen the root ball and tease the roots apart if they are matted or tangled. Set the cucumbers, eggplants, peppers, and squash into their holes so that the tops of the root balls are level with or just slightly below the surrounding soil. For the tomatoes, cut off all but the top 2-3 branches, lay the stem and roots at an angle in a trench about 4-5in deep, then cover the stem with soil, leaving the branches and leaves above ground. Tomato plants will send out roots along the buried stem, accelerating their growth.

Push soil back into each planting hole and firm the soil around each plant to eliminate air pockets. Water thoroughly to further settle the soil. Keep the soil around the plants moist but not soggy and provide shade (with row cover, cardboard, or lath) for the first few days. Transplant shock is not uncommon, but within a week or less the plants' roots will regain their ability to provide moisture to the foliage. Remove shading once plants perk up.

Continuing care: If rain is scarce, water your vegetable plants deeply and regularly (weekly, or more often in hot, dry weather).

Once the fruits of peppers and tomatoes start to ripen, water only if plants start to wilt; withholding water at this stage will result in better-flavored fruit. No additional fertilizer is needed, but a mulch of compost or aged manure won't hurt.

Plants can also be foliar fed throughout the season with a kelp- and/or fish-based product, but avoid high-nitrogen fertilizers, which promote lush growth at the expense of fruit production. Provide cages or supports for the tomato plants. Stake pepper plants so heavy yields don't break their branches.
