Ratings & Reviews
I found these to be very resilient in Central PA. I planted back in 2018 and got several volunteers in 2019 and several more volunteers this Sumer, 2020. Last year there were so many tomatoes on the volunteers and they are very tasty.
Wonderful cherry tomato!
I have this planted in a self watering patio planter. It's August 19th and I have already picked 92 tomatoes with lots more to go. So tasty in salads! It is at least 8 feet tall. Had to tie it to my gutter and it has reached the garage roof. Very clean foliage. Love it!
I live in Southern California and started these in February. It is now late August and I can not believe how huge this plant got. It is producing and producing - growing and growing. I had no idea it would get so big! What a wonderful surprise!
