55-68 days. Deliciously flavored currant tomato that originated from Maryland's southern shore. The tiny fruit of this variety vary in color; most are deep red but some are also rose, gold and yellow. The flavorful fruit are popular with chefs and home gardeners. The sprawling vines produce clusters of these intense tasting miniatures.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, good production

What are the cons? Flavor is okay...

Review:

For years I have grown the Gold Rush Currant (see that review - it is glowing), so I decided to try these in both 2014 and 2015. Tess' matched the Gold Rush in terms of strong plants, good disease resistance, being beautiful and prolific producers, re-seeding on their own (some are growing in quiet part of the yard right now in fact), however, they lacked the wonderful flavor. They are fine, but not special. Their flavor isn't unusual or unique. Given the hassle they are to pick, they are not worth it to me. There are other better tasting currant tomatoes and small red tomatoes out there. I would say they are fun for kids though and certainly could be used to dress up a plate or dish, but outside of that...meh.

What are the pros? Grew well, large yield

What are the cons? Sour, bitter taste

Review:

I was very excited to try this tomato, but was sorely disappointed by the taste. While it grew very well and out produced my other tomato varieties, the taste was very sour/bitter. Will not do this one again!

What are the pros? Earliest of all, profuse

What are the cons? None!

Review:

The first tomatoes to ripen in my garden. While other varieties, including those meant for cooler weather, produced very little, I got hundreds of tiny, tasty fruit from this variety. I gave many away, and all were enjoyed immensely. This was from five plants. My best producer in what was considered a truly bad tomato year here in the mid-Atlantic. I can't imagine how many I would have on a good year!

What are the pros? Absolutely delcious

Review:

Grew this tomato in containers here in Portland, Oregon. Out of all the heirloom tomatoes I grew this year, this one matured the earliest. The tomato grew to approximately 4-5 feet in height in a 5 gallon container. The plant produced by far the smallest, and also sweetest, tomatoes I have ever eaten. Continued to produce well after the season... I still had new tomatoes coming up in mid-November!

Review:

We really enjoyed this tomato, great fruity flavor and excellent grower and producer. Will be growing this one for years to come. Almost everyone liked this tomato but one or 2 didn't like the strong tomato flavor. I thought they were quite sweet and delicious.
