Without a doubt the sweetest tomato I have ever grown or eaten. All the others pale by comparison. Plants are tall and spindley without much vegitation, but very productive. Fairly susceptable to blight, but mine usually make it to October, still producing.

Was disappointed with the lack of tomato flavor and sweetness. Much preferred are Small Fry, Mexico Midget (extra small) and Sweet Chelsea (extra large) for cherries. Plant has grown to 9 feet. Many cracked fruit.

Very productive 1/2 ounce cherry tomato. So sweet that I refer to them as tomato candy. Kids absolutey love these! I have been growing this variety for over 10 years and would never think to not include them in my garden.
