I have ordered seeds many times from and I have always gotten great results. The "Black Cherry" tomatoes in bell7283's photo isn't Black Cherry. BC's are round and not oval. I have grown BC's for a couple of years and have found them to be somewhat bland. They don't live up to the hype!

Are the green ones fully matured or did you collect them earlier? First time I see such ones (if matured).

We had some yellow ones this year, forgot to take pics though

The green ones in the photo above are Green Zebra, and they are green when ripe. They too have a rather bland taste. A really great tasing GWR (Green when Ripe) is Spears Tennessee Green or Aunt Ruby's Green.
Black cherry have a similr taste to Cherokee Purple but not as pronounced. I prefer the taste Of Matt's Wild Cherry, which is red and not black. It has a taste that is usually found in larger heirloom tomatoes. I find most other cherry tomatoes to be sweet and bland.
