Cherry Bomb F1 is a small Cherry variety being very productive and early. Fruits have a thick wall and are produced on small strong plants. Fruits are round and approx 7cm in diameter and ripen green to bright red and are excellent for pickling.
We were really pleased with this variety last year which produced an abundant crop of versatile fruits early in the season through to late summer. Heat rating of 2,500-5,000 Scoville
Some have confused this variety with the Sweet Pepper called Red Cherry. However, although the plants look similar, the pods on the sweet cherry are much larger and rounder shaped. They also grow upwards. Cherry Bomb's on the other hand grow downwards. The pods are more elongated, almost teardrop shaped.
