Along with Momotaro, I gave Little Lucky my first "10's" this initial season of growing them. I base my ratings on flavor and productivity, and these two varieties are the best-ever of the more than 250 I have tried over the years. Little Lucky has pumped out dozens of sweet tennis-ball size bicolor fruit and continues to taste wonderful into mid-October - when most other varieties tend to lose sweetness. It's sister variety, Lucky Cross is supposed to be larger, but with fewer fruit. For me, Little Lucky is the ideal size.

I had the opportunity to taste Little Lucky at the 2007 Tomatopalooza tasting in North Carolina. It was one of my favorite varieties at the event. Superb flavor - tangy, yet sweet.

This variety was stabilized from an accidental cross between Brandywine and an unknown variety, and is a sister variety to Lucky Cross.
