Gajo De Melon is a very large (more like a cocktail-sized) bicolored cherry tomato. They are very pretty tomatoes and have a sweet, fruity flavor. The plant has some problems with disease but still is producing a decent crop. I'd grow these again because they look so nice in a cherry tomato mix.

A bicolor cherry type that's been listed for the last couple of years in the SSE Yearbook. I grew it this year and it seems to be almost identical to Isis Candy.
