Growing well at 7700' above sea level. Very productive with sweet/tart fruit. Fruit is larger than average cherry tomato and tolerant of nights down to 46 degrees, though some protection from cold winds helps. Will definitely grow again and will try using seed from the plant I have to start next spring.

Another PNW admirer of this very tasty cherry tomato. Loads of nice sized golden cherry tomatoes with a fantastic flavor. Maybe it likes cooler climates.

Good tasting little tomatoes, they are not as sweet as some cherries but they have a good balance of sweet and tart. They also are also very productive, I will definetely grow again.

Galinas is a large cherry that is very prolific and early on a tall, sprawling plant. The flavor is not overly sweet. Overall, it is a good, basic cherry tomato but not extraordinary.

The most productive tomato I have ever grown here in the PNW. It's very tasty and seems to be the neighbors favorite as well. I will always grow this variety.

Delicious yellow-gold cherry type, nice balance of sweet and tart. One of my favorite small-fruited varieties. Potato leaf.
