Rather small-fruited cherry tomato, average taste. Is growing and producing well in semi-shade.

Bought this plant at Lowe's it is a "Bonnie Plant" (evidently that is the company. Stuck it in the ground and is growing like crazy. I am happy with it but I am NO tomatoe expert. With the exception of the three tomato plant's (also Bonnies, 1 is a big boy, and two are different cherry tomato's), I have managed to kill every tomatoe plant I grow. Wish me luck this year with these new ones!.
