Highly Recommended. Easy to grow, disease resistant fruits, large yields.
This is probably my favorite tomato to grow. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if it is a heirloom variety – and so I’ve never tried saving seeds! It also looks like Seeds of Change has discontinued this tomato variety. We have enough seeds from the 2010 season left over to grow this out for a few more years, and I also plan to save seeds from our 2011 crop to test in 2012.
This is a large, nearly golf-ball sized perfectly round cherry tomato. They are pretty meaty for a cherry tomato, but have a great flavor and are excellent in salads. They can also be sliced onto sandwiches.
The indeterminate vines are heavy producers. Our tomato crop was victim to blight in 2010, and these tomatoes kept on producing perfect fruit even while the leaves died off.
