Gold Rush Currant Tomato

Tiny currant tomatoes ripen a deep, rich golden orange. And so sweet! The fruits on this nearly wild-type tomato are just a quarter-inch in diameter, but produced on large trusses of up to a dozen fruits, with many ripening at once. The fruits are tiny, but the flavor is big—rich, juicy and sweet! Superb for snacking, delightful in salads; make the cutest garnish on your favorite dishes. A selection from renowned Dutch seedsman, the late Kees Sahin.

What are the pros? Looks nice, prolific

What are the cons? taste and size

Review:

This year I grew 5 different currant tomatoes, Matt's wild cherry, Petit Moineau, Coyote, Tess land race and Gold rush one, and I loved all of them except this one. First time we picked them they tasted sour and chewy, we figured that they were not quite ripe yet and let them be, the plant itself looked gorgeous, prolific and healthy covered in million of tiniest tomatoes you have ever seen, and that was another thing, kids didn't want to bother to pick them because they were smaller than a small blueberry, they liked red ones...The taste didn't improve during the last days of summer, only when the cold nights came in September it developed sweetness, but by then I have removed half of the plant thinking it was a waste of the little space that I have.I will not plant it again, at least not for food, the plant is supper decorative but we had no use of it. I keep thinking I could have had a normal tomato in it's spot producing a decent amount of slicing toms or cherries for kids to eat.

What are the pros? Production, flavor, uniqueness

What are the cons? Picking is a hassle

Review:

This is year five and they are my husbands favorite. Everyone loves them really. They start out well and finish strong. Huge strands of deep yellow currant sized tomatoes. They have a pop to them, like cooking cranberries. They are prolific, will take over a space, must be caged and monitored, and they always re-seed on their own outdoors. I can't stop them. Very disease resistant, continues to produce as the cold sets in, and one of my last tomatoes for the fall. Great snacker, fabulous in salads, delicious roasted, a real treat - use them for pasta. A little oil, herbs, garlic, and a big bowl of these (only cook for 10-20 minutes) make a wonderfully fresh tasting and unique pasta dish. Add pine nuts, parsley, parmesean cheese, and/or shrimp. Beautiful presentation and flavor. Picking these can be tedious, but they are worth the effort. My husband chooses these for a pasta dish for his October birthday dinner every year.

What are the pros? Super easy, so cute.

What are the cons? Like picking berries, tedious.

Review:

I grew about 30 varieties of tomatoes this year, more than half were cherry types. These little tomatoes are so prolific! I had them under plastic, I only watered them in the first few weeks to get them established, they just didn't seem to need too much water. To spite the drought and intense heat we had in the Hudson Valley this summer (90's end of June through August), they grew huge and have produced more tomatoes than I can pick. If left to fully ripen on the vine they are very sweet. My CSA people loved them, I used them in salads mixed with other tomatoes, the kids loved them and I pickled many of them. Just adorable and look so neat canned with other varieties.

What are the pros? do not crush as easily

What are the cons? not so easy to pick

Review:

I have grown several varieties of currant tomatoes. Gold Rush doesn't crush as easily as other varieties so is?better for sharing. Some such as Hawiian current and Matt's wild cherry are tasty but have such fragile skin they barely last the trip from the garden to the house. Gold Rush is also the smallest of the types I have grown. I grow them inside a 6 foot cage made of concrete reinforcing wire.
