Prolific and delicious
I've grown these for a couple of years now. Very prolific and reliable cherry tomato. I'm overrun by the end of the season!
Delicious, prolific producer - Riesentraube
by Mike deMayo
First year planting Riesentraube from seed, 100% germination, easy to transplant, PROLIFIC, sweet producer. Pop these like candy for snacks, or salads, or whatever -- late SEP and cooling down in Central NY but these plants are PROLIFIC producers, despite my battle with tomato hornworms - which I won. Just 3-4 plants will throw off dozens of sweet, delicious cherry sized tomatoes well into a warm SEP in Central NY. I had harvested a dozen to dozen and a half tomatoes, every 2-3 days, from 6 Riesentraube plants from Mid-AUG to Mid SEP. Have saved seeds and will do Riesentraube again, in 2022.
