Been growing these every year since 2008. Tons of small tomatoes. Almost too sweet if left to fully ripen, but picked early they are firm and tangy. My favorite snacking tomato!

lots of tiny round rose colored fruit on extensive trusses, but too sour for me, and I prefer tangy tomatoes to sweet ones.
