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.
