Does this look like a tomato plant?

I didn't keep track of which is which on my cherry tomatoes but I think this one is supposed to be Black Cherry. The leaves are odd.

Could it be something else?

Sure looks like a tomato to me. I have a black cherry plant. I will look at it this morning and check. It looks very healthy. Pinch the leaves; tomatoes have a distinctive smell.

RE: Does this look like a tomato plant?

Not something else. Definitely a happy tomato plant!

RE: Does this look like a tomato plant?

Christie, I have a tomato that has "potato" leaves. Without looking at the label it's either a Cherokee Purple or Brandywine.
Did you plant either one? It may be that, but/and I think it's definitely a tomato --
Hope this helps

RE: Does this look like a tomato plant?

Thanks! Glad you all think it looks like a tomato.
I didn't plant either of those Sunny but they were just seeds from a trade so there's always a chance that they were mislabled. It's in a spot where I planted one each of Coyote, Isis Candy and Black Cherry. The leaves on the other two aren't as broad.

The Cherokee Purple has regular tomato leaves.

Brandywine has potato leaf variety.
