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? Taste like a beefsteak

What are the cons? slow to mature

Review:

These are interesting. They do indeed taste more like a beefsteak than most cherry types. Huge plants produced prolific yields, but they took forever, much like a large beefsteak. First tomatoes were ripe about 90days from transplant, with the majority of the crop coming in days 120-150, just ahead of the fall frost.

What are the pros? Very prolific, lots of fruit

What are the cons? Not very sweet, kinda pulpy

Review:

Tried to grow this variety for 3 years because the catalog reviews are always so stellar. Yes it was prolific, but up here in upstate NY, the fruit were ALWAYS lacking in sweetness and character ...and the fruit was pulpy and bland. Will never try to grow this variety again - there are so many better tasting cherry tomatoes!

What are the pros? abundant production

What are the cons? Not a one!

Review:

I struggle to grow tomatoes from seed but these ones took off and we had cherry tomatoes coming out our ears! They produce tons of delicious little clusters of bright red fruit. Will definitely plant these ones again!

Review:

Prolific even growing in partial shade near Omaha. Good flavor when ripe. This may replace my "large cherry" variety.
