Lots of tomatoes

5 out of 5 stars Aug 7, 2021
I only planted one cherry tomato for a change and this one is making up for the several others I usually would plant. It's more orange when it's ripe than red for me. They are very tasty and prolific.

These were very good! I very rarely had any issues with splitting, only at end of season when I wasn't keeping up with the picking. These seem to be pretty disease resistant-they were the last plant I removed from my garden. A must have for my 2022 garden.

Love this tomato. I would not call it a cherry, it is a big size cherry but very meaty. I like to cut them into 4 slices and dehydrate them. No issues with the growth habit other than it was one of my first to die out of 30+ tomato plants. Will grow again! Easy to start from seeds.

I grew these for the first time 2021. I started them indoors and they all germinated! They all did very well when planted in the garden. I love the flavor and so did the rest of my family. They are on the list for planting every year along with my Sun Golds!
