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:

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 : )

What are the pros? Easy to grow in pot

What are the cons? Tastes like soap

Review:

I was so excited at the possibility of having a determinate cherry tomato in a pot. It grew perfectly, was unaffected by disease, had dozens and dozens of perfectly formed tomatoes. Unfortunately, the flavor is bland and almost offensive - though they were perfectly red and ripe, they tasted like a green unripe tomato. Yuck. Too bad, I really was hoping it would be a new favorite to grow in pots. Sadly, I have only found hybrids worth the time to grow as patio tomatoes.

Review:

I enjoyed the size and ease of growing. I also liked how prolific it is. However, the taste did not impress me. It tasted like an average grocery store cherry tomato

What are the pros? Pretty plants

What are the cons? Late fruiting in my area

Review:

I have 4 Minibel plants going in a window box on the front of my house. They get about 8 hours of sun per day. It was a cold spring and a cool summer in northern MN, so they were slow to start, slow to flower, and slow to ripen, but the plants are lovely (12 inches tall, sturdy, and quite bushy) and they are absolutely covered with tomatoes. Fruits are about 1.5 inches in diameter, and between the 4 plants I have probably 75 of them, and they're still flowering like crazy too. I will definitely plant them again next year. I may just start them a little earlier.
