This cherry style tomato is a wonderfully sweet one that grew really well for me in zone 5a. It has a lot of fruit on it and they do not crack. I grew it from seed and purchased the seed from Seed Savers. Their 2005 website describes this tomato as follows: "NEW! Better by the bunch! Highly productive plants yield a steady stream of 1" fruits that are borne in clusters of 10-20. Incredibly sweet tomato flavor. Indeterminate, 75 days from transplant."
