Pea sized red tomato!
by Mac C.
Tiny, pea sized, bright to dark red tomato that is bursting with flavor. Quite prolific!
Great little tomato
Great burst of flavor when used in salads. My friend's son would eat them by the handful. Buying again this year.
I'm sure there was nothing wrong with the seeds but I wonder if I was incorrectly led to believe they'd do fine in my zone (10b). I started them in a proper mixture and though they looked fine they took months to be hearty enough to transplant into the ground. I planted them 10/20 and it wasn't until about 1/21 that I got them in the ground. The growth was slow but they did look good. As of 6/21, they produced only 4 tomatoes (they tasted great) and even though I have them under shadecloth they are already starting to brown and die. Plenty of flowers, sprawling vines, etc., just no fruit. Perhaps they are not itended for my zone but I've never had issues with other small varieties. Most strange, though, is how slow they've been growing (my soil is very good). It just seems like taking seven months before fruit appeared...and only four...is a bit extreme.
Cutest tomato ever! (And so sweet)
by Darcy E
This is BY FAR my favorite tomato. It has been extremely prolific and the fruits are very sweet and downright adorable. It has an aggressive vining growth pattern so be sure to stay on top of it to keep it where you want it. It seems to be indestructible and has withstood my pruning and manhandling without batting an eye. Will definitely plant this variety again.
Amazingly small fruit
These were the tiniest cherry tomatoes I've ever seen. Easy for kids to reach and eat. Extremely prolific as in I couldn't keep up. Tast was good too. Not bland and not super sweet, but good enough to still grow. I grew these in my high tunnel, and they did well, but too sprawly for a tunnel. Would do great outside. These would be amazing in a basket of mixed types of cherry tomatoes.
