I was given one plant 2 years ago and it went wild! I now have plants coming up all over my back yard. I believe it is due to the birds eating them. They are very tasty tomatoes and produce all year long here in S. Texas. Even when a cold front comes through it just damages the top leaves but the others just keep coming out. It will run like a vine if allowed to. It is climbing up the side of my house now. It grows almost as fast as kudzu. I have plenty of free seeds if anyone is interested in this. This would be great for a school project.

I gave a friend of mine a start late last summer; he kept it inside, and it's taken over the kitchen window, climbing like a vine. It's borne fruit the entire time since then, with little care. The tomatoes are sweet and pea-sized. Very cute and interesting.
