This tomato is one variety I will continue to grow in my garden.

I picked my first green grape tomato today. It was yellowish green and bright green inside. It had a sweet and tangy taste which I am looking forward to in salads. The plant is very bushy and about 3 feet tall. I caged it so it's kind of hard to spot the tomatoes unfortunately. I had to add another piece of caging and widen the plant for a better view of the inside. It looks like it will be a couple weeks before the first big batch starts turning. Then let the salsa making begin!

One of the best things about this tomato is the brilliant green colour once sliced open. The exterior is a dull green/yellow, but the interior is brilliant which makes it really stand out beautifully in a salad. It's flavour is quite remarkable too, different but delicious. I grow it every year.

We ended up with one plant this year as a result of a mistake on an order. It was supposed to be 'Grape', but this variety was sent instead. I have to say that because of this mistake, we will probably grow it every year. It has a wonderful flavor that you wouldn't expect when you first bite into it.
It wasn't especially prolific, but we had such a dry year that it might not be the plants fault.

This produced fairly well despite a lot of shade in my garden. I thought the taste was ok but not exceptional. I normally give away a lot of tomatoes to friends, but I had a hard time selling them a yellowish green 1.5 inch tomato until they tried one.

This is one of my favorite tomatoes and grows well here in northern Idaho. I agree with the writer who reported that they start green and turn yellow-never red. They are best when the green is just starting to get a few streaks of yellow but still mostly green. Wonderful just picked in salads.

A very good flavor for a cherry. Yellowish-green with darker shoulders, compares in size to Large Red Cherry.
Someone else mentioned that theirs starts green and then turns red, I would wager that they are growing something that is not Green Grape. They should start as dull green and then get the yellowish color as they ripen and that is the end of the process. I have seen several that have rotted on the vine and there was no red involved at all.

Nice 'spicy-sweet' flavor when ripe. On the large side for a cherry type. Vigorous, lanky, gangly foliage.

Matures: 60 days. Looks very much like a a grapevine, 3/4" fruit starts green but does turn red. Very good flavor.
