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:

Unlike other reviews here i disagree, i have 3 minibel plants producing lot's of tomatoes and so far they all taste really great, so i don't know what's that fuss about the taste. I'll definitely grow more from this variety. And the plants also look very nice on the pots.

What are the pros? Grows quick

What are the cons? No fruit in sand

Review:

I grew these in pots while stationed overseas. Plants grew well beyond the 12" limit and produced several small tomatoes. Nothing worth writing home about. I've since moved to the Florida panhandle and have planted the remaining seeds in my backyard. After 60ish days I have two plants,~8" in height and both have dead flowers. It might be the sand, but no fruit will be produced. The potted plants grew in excess of 20" and hand many small tomatoes. Not recommended for sandy yards. Probably good for anything north of middle Georgia.

What are the pros? Short, no support needed.

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

Planted 8; four in pots, four in raised bed. Both sets amended with rabbit manure with good drainage. Both tomato sets grew and matured proportionately. No difference from the pots and raised beds. First fruit had size just smaller than a cherry tomato and the rest were significantly smaller in size. Taste of the fruit was not sweet or acid. SOUR! Nurtured and waited for a tomato that tasted so different than any tomato I have ever grown. I will not grow again; (OK maybe 2 pot plants to see if anything changes during the fall harvest just to be fair.)

Review:

After the flood from the storm a couple of years back, we had to move and no longer had the family garden. I had to resort more than ever to space saving varieties in an effort to grow as much as possible. This one would have probably intrigued me anyway, seeing as how unique and space saving it was(good even with the still-quite-limited space of a city garden), but it seemed essential to try now. I grew two of these, in addition to growing the italian Winter Grape, and both were spectacular. The plants were as small as advertised, and absolutely constantly smothered in fruit. I think there was only one period in time, on one of the Minibel plants, where we weren't picking every single day. The flavor was good, and almost as important, consistent through the changes in summer heat and the coming of early fall. When it hit the upper 40's at night, they finally started to thicken up and get very fleshy. Up until then, they were very juicy. We just used them in cooking after that : )
