Gardeners' Notes:

Wonderful little tomato. I don't bother to grow any other red cherry because this tastes so good and grows so well. Fruits are larger than other currents I've grown. It's more along the size of a smallish cherry. Flavor is wonderful - it just has a sweet, but very full tomato flavor. Reseeds itself and very prolific. I grow tomato plants for our farmer's market and forgot to grow these one year - I had quite a few customers that were disappointed I didn't have it.
