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.
