76-85 days. This old German heirloom was offered in Philadelphia by the mid-1800's. The sweet red 1-oz fruit grow in large clusters, and the name means "Giant Bunch of Grapes" in German. It is probably the most popular small tomato with seed collectors, as many enjoy the rich, full tomato flavor that is missing in today's cherry types. Large plants produce massive yields.

What are the pros? Wonderful flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is an absolutely wonderful tomato. The flavor is incredible fresh out of the garden. I have also tried drying these tomatoes to preserve them, but they are so sweet and delicious that the dried tomatoes only last a day or two in my house. Very easy to grow; in fact, I have several plants inevitably pop up every year in random locations in my yard (I credit industrious chipmunks!)

What are the pros? SO MANY TOMATOES

What are the cons? None

Review:

These little tomatoes are just lovely. There are so many of them once they start producing! One plant is more than enough for my husband and I between salads, eating them in the garden, and roasting them for the freezer to eat on pasta dishes in the winter.

What are the pros? Flavor, prolific nature

What are the cons? None

Review:

This cherry tomato has the best tomato flavor and is a massive producer with few pest and blight issues. I have grown this tomato with great success for years in Massachusetts. In fact this tomato has had the best success of all the varieties I have grown and will not go a single year without it. Although slightly slower to mature, typically produces viable fruit for me even after a light frost, a very redeeming quality.

What are the pros? massive fruit sets

What are the cons? late to ripen

Review:

I've grown these for a couple of years. They're always the last of my tomatoes to ripen. So late that maybe half don't beat the fall frost, which is a shame because they are tasty and there's a ton of them. I don't know if it's me, my area, or the plant. Fine variety if you have a longer season.

What are the pros? prolific, delicious flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

This variety is a staple of my Indiana summer vegetable garden. It is a bit slow to mature, but once it does, be prepared to harvest these delicious little tomatoes until the first frost. To say this variety is prolific is an understatement. The plants are sturdy and seem to grow and grow and grow – even caged and staked they still seem to take over the garden. The lovely little red tomatoes are large for a cherry tomato and are one of the most flavorful varieties I’ve grown. They are perfect to snack on right out in the garden - no salt necessary!
