What are the pros? Great Taste, Prolific
What are the cons? Little hard to start
After having a great couple years with Tess's Land Currant, I decided it would be fun to try some other colors of currant tomatoes. And I'm glad I did. My hardy Tess did terrible and my orange currants were just as bad. These however, have saved the day. They are about the size of blueberries and very sweet and tasty. They were the last to germinate and now, the healthiest bushes I have. The one bush that is a bit smaller is still producing like a champ. I will be growing these again!

What are the pros? delicious
What are the cons? take forever to germinate
These were my kids' favorite cherry tomatoes last year, and really prolific, even though the plants were fairly compact in the five gallon grow bags we used. This year we will put them into a larger container. They do take a long time to germinate. Like, a really long time. This year, they are almost exactly two months behind all my other tomatoes, under the exact same conditions. Same thing last year, germinated two months after every other tomato. One other negative is that they are hard to pick when fully ripe - they tend to crack. So not for storage, they are pretty much a pick-to-plate (or mouth) kind of tomato.

What are the pros? sweet flavor, early producer,
What are the cons? self sows like mad
Very sweet fruit that kids love to eat right off the vine. Great for salads. Very productive vines up to 9ft tall in the Pacific northwest. Only draw back is the forest of seedlings that come up every spring and well into summer.

What are the pros? Yummy and easy
What are the cons? Wish I planted more!
There aren't very many tomatoes I've tasted to date that I like much raw, but I really enjoy these! Wait until they are nice and ripe for the best sweetness. These have been very easy to grow and pest free for me, just make sure you cage,stake, and do a little pruning they will get tall! Once they start to ripen you will be picking some everyday, anywhere from a dozen to 30 or so per plant. Only thing that I might consider a con is when they are ripe some may split if you aren't careful while picking them. I will definitely grow these again!

What are the pros? Fool proof!!
What are the cons? None
These plants started off as tiny little spindly seedlings. But have grown into giants!!! They are probably at least 7 feet tall!! Compared to the other cherry tomatoes I’ve started... these have developed much quicker and more plentiful. They taste like candy!!! Super sweet, if they are very ripe they may split when I pick them. But that’s not a problem as we eat them immediately. I will start some again next year. This is my first time starting and harvesting tomatoes from seed!!
I would say these are larger than another red currant tomato a friend gave me.
If you start these prepare to cage and stake!! Super tall plants ;)
