I tried this variety twice. I found the tomatoes a bit tart and not at all productive. I won't be growing them again. I had better success with Golden Pearl Drop which are smaller, but sweeter and more prolific.

I grew Blondkopfchen in my zone 7A garden and was still picking tomatoes at Thanksgiving. So tiny I could hold a dozen in the palm of my hand and so sweet I ate them like candy. Vigorous & prolific.

Also known as 'Little Blonde Girl', hence the German name.

A bit of history: Seed obtained from the Gatersleben Seed Bank in eastern Germany.
