    I grew Matts cherry tomatoes for the first time this summer, and they are very sweet, the only problem is they are so small and fragile that they split when I try to harvest them. I barely apply any pressure and they are ruined so I have to throw them out. I won’t grow them ever again because of this. It’s too bad too because they do have a great flavor, but what a waste when 2/3 split when I pick them. I even tried to harvest them slightly under ripe in hopes the skin would be a little tougher but no luck. It was worth trying once. I’ll stick to my sweet 100’s.

      I’m sorry to have read about your Matt’s not being so wild. Over time I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t for my climate. This was another year where the stupice did not thrive but Matt’s cherry sure did where it was planted. I only watered early in the season and since July we’ve been fortunate with rain following the heat waves. My gardens are built to slow water and pool it underground. This has allowed for continued tomato growth even during the present dearth.
