Productive and tasty fruit from this small fruited tomato variety. It developed wilt right as the first clusters ripened, but they were delicious nonetheless. I will try to grow this again next year.

A friend at my community garden is growing these. The taste is out of this world! They are so sweet and fruity and juicy, that I just had to grow them myself. I cleaned and dried some seeds from one fruit that had split open. 2 days later, I placed 6 seeds on a damp paper towel (rolled up, tucked in a ziplock bag, and placed in a warm spot). 2 days after that, all seeds had started to sprout. I planted them in little pots and all are growing happily. I will report back when they start producing fruit.

One of my favorite tomatoes... Blush seeds can be purchased from Seeds of Change. They describe them as 2" long "julienne cherries" with a tropical sweet flavor reminiscent of pineapple. They're yellow with a blush of red, when ripe.

These are delicious and beautiful... truly gourmet. I have not yet detected any notes of pineapple, but it's a really scrumptious tomato. I've had some fruits grow to 4" in length. The actual plant has a very "weeping/droopy" growth habit.
