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? 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!

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.
