Our favorite new tomato this year! The fruit are tiny and creamy white, with skins having a yellow tint. The sweetest tomato we grew in 2003 with superb flavor. Even better than Matts Wild Cherry". The fruit grow in clusters, and the yield was huge! We had more than we could pick right up to frost. Large vining plants. A perfect cherry for home and market gardeners. A wild type.

What are the pros? Diverse color, flavor, growth

What are the cons? Lower germination success

Review:

Germination rate was low compared to the other seeds purchased. Could be my fault since this was my first year growing tomatoes from seed, so I haven't deducted on the overall rating too much for this, though it was really the only down-side. The two plants that survived for transplant have been phenomenal producers, early to maturity (on par with most cherry varieties) and super delicious with nice acidity, flavor, color, and texture. Will definitely grow again next year with my remaining seeds.

What are the pros? Productive productive!

What are the cons? tedious to pick

Review:

Started some from seed last year and they did really well. This year I had over 30 volunteer plants come up. I transplanted them all together and never got around to prune or trellis them. They did FANTASTIC!! I would highly recommend them to everyone. So productive. They are just laying in dirt and have very very mild blight. They are doing 10x better than my other 30 various heirloom tomatoes that are kept up via Florida weave. Very tasty too. Took them to the farmers market last week and people were super intrested and thought they were "so adorable"

What are the pros? flavor, easy

What are the cons? don't store well

Review:

I used to scoff at reviewers who said they couldn't keep up with the production of a tomato plant. I had never encountered any such nonsense until I planted this white cherry currant. I planted 3 plants (2 in an actual garden & 1 in a container). They produced early & they just keep producing. I literally can't keep up. At the beginning of the season, I pruned them back heavily due to early blight. They looked horrible, & I wasn't sure they would make it. They still show signs of blight, but I think this plant just quickly outgrows whatever ails it. One of my plant is 10 feet wide. Give it LOTS of room & prune (I'm normally not a big pruner). They taste DELICIOUS! The only negative thing that I can say about this little tomato is that it doesn't keep well. They frequently tear when being picked because they are fragile. I've learned to use clippers & snip an entire cluster off even if it still has some green tomatoes. They'll ripen up quickly. That helps with the mess & fruit flies.

What are the pros? Deep, rich flavor

What are the cons? A bit more work

Review:

I grew two plants this year and had as many little gems as one person could keep up with. The flavor is just stunning - they have the rich, sweet depth of slow-roasted tomatoes right off the vine. They handle drought and water issues well, mature very early, and keep producing all summer long. The vines do become vast and sprawling; foolishly, I planted them with my smaller tomato cages, and they completed overwhelmed them and ran wild across the grass. Next year I'm going to try trellising them or wrapping them around the cages. Caveats: it's easy to damage the top of the tiny fruit when picking, so pick with a delicate hand and pop any damaged fruit in your mouth. :) They are considerably more effort per pound than larger tomatoes, as they take a great deal more picking. They are absolutely worth it! Adding a couple of handfuls to spaghetti sauce imparted a wonderful flavor.

What are the pros? Exceptionally sweet,high yield

What are the cons? None

Review:

Bought this cherry variety bc the Tess' Land Currants were sold out. Best cherry tomato that I have ever encountered in 25 years of home gardening. Consistently sweet, with high yield, and the plant has been very resistant to disease, unlike other heirlooms I grow. Only grew two plants this year bc I didn't know what to expect. Next year, half of my cherry tomato plants will be this variety. As others have said, rarely do any make it into the house when picking.
