Ratings & Reviews
I love these little tomatoes! They are like juicy candy! The vines sprawl and become huge and bushy so leave lots of room between. They are a great snack on hot days working out in the garden and delicious on salads. Huge producer! What's funny is they started out the smallest of all my tomato varieties before transplant, but then shot up fast once they were in the ground.
Great summer snack
Loved these tomatoes, planted them for the first time summer 2019 here in zone 5/6. Just planted my next round under grow lights here and am looking forward to a second season. Great tasting, prolific, and stood up well to the summer sun here. Perfect as a snack and recently used to make homemade tomato sauce as well.
Background: Zone 7A, seeds were direct sown, seeds were innoculated at planting, growing tips were pruned throughout the season at ~24 inches in height.
Wonderful taste and prolific growth habit. As long as you have plenty of calcium in the soil and regular water, these tomatoes will produce huge amounts of fruit. I've got clusters of 20 to 30 on each branch of a single plant. Zero complaints, will continue with these into the future!
Prolific and lasts forever!
It’s December 28 and we JUST ate the last of these (I trimmed every branch with green tomatoes before the first freeze in October and let them ripen). They were fantastic and flavorful and the only downside was they were small and easy to put in your mouth instead of the container while picking.
not my favorite
Very productive plant but these were our least favorite small tomatoes due to very thick skin.
Huge yields and great flavor
This is my favorite cherry tomato to date. I liked this one so much that I regretted using space to plant other varieties rather than planting multiple Blondkopfchen. Look up pictures of how this plant fruits. There are massive clusters of 25-50 tomatoes which makes it really easy to pick, as opposed to clusters of 6 scattered everywhere like most cherry tomato plants. It also doesn't shoot suckers everywhere, and seems to naturally stay at about 3 thick stems if you let it go. Very sweet flavor, not really any acidity. I grew the plant sideways on a balcony and snaked it back on itself, but it was easily 8 ft of vine. It also held up against diseases and pests better than other varieties I grew.
