Very prolific, heat and drought tolerant grape tomatoes. Firm with a slightly tart, acid taste like paste and canning tomatoes. Purchased seeds at Native Seeds/SEARCH.

I purchased seeds from Native Seed/SEARCH. Their catalog has the following description:
"These seeds were sent to us by the Nichols family in Tucson. Volunteer seeds that just kept coming up, they have been maintained by the family patriarch for about 50 years. It is well adapted to the desert; it is heat-tolerant and prefers full sunlight. The tasty "pink cherry" tomatoes are prolific producers."

I find them to be pleasantly tart and tangy--not "garden candy", but good for salads or snacking.
