Riesentraube Tomato

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? flavor, extremely bountiful

What are the cons? split with rain

Review:

These tomatoes will pay for themselves in one bunch. They are extremely bountiful! We actually had to give some away, which I thought I would never do. They became "to go" gifts whenever friends would come over even after they raided the garden and picked/ate them. Grow very tall when not kept in check but have produced into the heat of summer in south florida.

What are the pros? wasn't anything wrong with it

What are the cons? wasn't anything great about it

Review:

Here on the Southern California Coast, I wasn't able to get much production from the Riesentraube Tomato. Certainly nothing like the photo or other people's reviews. The flavor didn't stand out either. I'm chalking it up to bad luck. Maybe it could have used more sun and more space. It probably deserves a second chance.

Our favorite red cherry tomato
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? prolific, sturdy plant

What are the cons? none

Review:

We have grown Riesentraubes for several seasons in both a garden bed and in containers. They do well in containers but do even better in a bed. The plant has a thick and sturdy stalk and can handle high winds in a thunder storm. The plants produce big clusters of tasty tomatoes. We usually end up having to give them away. If you have room for only one cherry tomato plant, grow this one.
