These delicious snack-sized tomatoes are so petite and sweet; you will pop them like candy straight from the vine! Jelly Bean Red & Yellow tomatoes are a such a treat for kids and tomato lovers they should be in everyone's garden. Toss them in salads or use them for relish trays. The red Jelly Beans are 20 grams and the yellow Jelly Beans are a little smaller at 15 grams. Both are very prolific plants, and the tomatoes grow in large clusters of 15-30 fruits with a long harvest period. Seeds are color-coded, so you can be sure to plant at least one of each variety. Crack resistant and disease resistant, these plants are easy to grow. Vines are several feet tall and should be tied to a trellis, caged, or staked.
