This is an excellent tomato, large for a cherry variety, and best of all it is perfect for our short winter and the plant is a bush type with a large number of flowers and the fruit is very well trussed, and what I like is that it can hold lots of water without splitting and the taste is great. This tomato reminds me of the types that were around when I was a child. Happy with this tomato.

I'm amazed..it nearly has 'nt stopped raining after planting out outside in may and it still bears good ripened fruit..a keeper I'm sure. Tomatoes are tasty and are relatively big for a cherry.
