75 days. Small, 1-1/2-inch red fruit are pear-shaped. This heirloom dates back to the 1700's. It was offered by many seedsmen and was very popular for making "Tomato Figs"; the fruit is sweet and tasty.

Review:

Rough season here in Northern IL with spring starting late and getting nights in the high 40's during August, not to mention the wettest June on record and low temps all summer long - unheard of. In spite of all the weirdness this year though, these plants did very well. We planted two to test them. Very good production. Good eating tomato, but even better for cooking. We halve then, toss with olive oil plus a little salt and pepper, and roast in the over at 500 F for 12 minutes on the top rack and then use about a pound and a quarter in place of sauce for homemade pizza. The flavor is superb - a rich tomato taste, yet fruity, but not sweet exactly. They actually are perfect for pizza. Looking forward to trying them next in a pasta sauce.

Review:

Our new small favorite tomato. We used sliced, in salads, pastas and made a fantastic dried tomato. Small but very flavorful. Grandkids ate them like candy in the garden. Very prolific. Not so much of a dislike but be prepared for tall plants. Ours started at 10 feet and 1 hit 12 feet. Don't let that deter you. This is a keeper.

Review:

This is a great cherry tomato that looks like a little bowling pin and the taste is sweet & tomatoey. Actually, I gave a plant to my co-worker thinking it was Pearly Pink but ended up being this tomato instead. When he brought some into work, I realized my seed packet contained 2 varieties. He told me his 8 year old son would go out into the garden and eat them right off the plant so not too many made it into the house! I would highly recommend this variety.

i love this little guy!! i use it on rye bread with sausage and butter! a great flavor although it does not have a conventional "tomato" flavor. more of a spicy than a sweet flavor. it's in my garden every year!!

Review:

I grew this in 2009 and wish I had used the space for a more worthwhile variety. The plant was VERY vigorous and disease resistant, however the fruit was not worth the effort. Small somewhat dry and tasteless tiny red plum tomatoes unsuited to using as fresh cherry tomatoes or for cooking. Thick skinned. I don't recommend this tomato. Plus it took forever for it to ripen.
