Taste as good as they look.

These are tasty, pretty little tomatoes. Not as prolific as many cherry varieties, but much better eating. Don't snack on them while sitting at your desk, because you will spray seeds everywhere. They went well when added to sauce, but were hard to peel. Love them for fresh eating, sliced and roasted on an English muffin with swiss cheese, and in an omelette.
