65 days. Determinate. Bite-sized fruits are sweet and flavorsome. Tiny ornamental plants reach only to about a foot in height and require no support. Covered in tasty little tomatoes. Excellent choice for containers, pots or hanging baskets; pretty enough for the patio or deck. So cute!

Review:

I solely bought this seed based on the description "Tiny ornamental plants reach only to about a foot in height and require no support". But one of this plant I planted in ground grew so big and was all over the place. The branches were loaded with tiny fruits and was out of control. The fruits were just OK. I wouldn't plant this variety again.

Review:

It's too hot here to grow tomatoes in the summertime, so I planted 2 of these seeds in their own individual pod and placed them in my indoor, counter top Aerogarden. They sprouted almost immediately, produced multiple flowers which we hand pollinated using a clean makeup brush, and at day 67, we have too many tomatoes to count and all are beginning to ripen. Can't wait to see what they taste like.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, no staking

What are the cons? Flavor is bad

Review:

I grew these hydroponically using my Tower Garden. Planted 4 and for the first two months, these did amazing. Stayed compact, prolific producer, but got powdery mildew. I'm up 30 feet in the air and there are no birds where I'm at since it's an urban setting. While they are hardy and put up a great fight against the powdery mildew I would not plant these again unless it's for decoration. The minibell tomato is easy to grow, low maintenance, but the skins were thick and the flavor was terrible. Mine wasn't bitter, it was just watery, slightly acidic, no sweetness. Also these are prone to cracking. In the end, the minibel tomato was fun to grow, not fantastic to eat. I've tried to roast them and put them in a curry to try and coax out some sweetness but the fruit itself was lack luster over all. So my search for a prolific producing bush/patio tomato continues.

Review:

These tomatoes are hardy! My house recently burned down, and a few of my seed packets survived. I put them in soil hoping to save something from the fire, and these already sprouted are starting to grow. Last year these were neither tart nor flavorless (Maybe the drought and our heat/ level of sun had something to do with it). I used compost and raised beds. They did very well and produced from may until November.

Review:

I grew this tomato in the greenhouse as part of a second season crop and that's perhaps why the flavor was sssoooo bad. So bad, in fact, I spit it out. Maybe it just didn't like the high temps in the greenhouse, so I moved it out to the garden where the squirrels had started devouring every tomato out there, yet they wouldn't touch these. They were bitter like a pill. My other greenhouse tomatoes thrived and tasted outstanding: Black Krim, Cherokee Purple, Fox Cherry, Black Cherry, Hartman's Gooseberry. Not sure what I did wrong besides location, and I will try again next season...on the patio.
