Cherub Tomatoes

Post  countrynaturals on 7/28/2017, 3:24 pm

I want to grow those tiny, sweet grocery store "Cherub" tomatoes, but I read that the seeds are only available to commercial growers, so, my question is: what is the sweetest tiny tomato variety that I can grow for salads?

Mine are tiny.  I'm not sure they are what you want.  ?? They are the tiny reds on the left of the lineup.

The smallest tomatoes that i have come across are called currant tomatoes. They are about the size of a large pea. The big mail order houses should carry the seed. They add a great surprise crunch to salads but it's a real pain to pick all those tiny rascals.

The Sweet 100s should be fine. Pea size sounds like too much work for the reward. Razz

I agree. We sold the currant type for a few years at the co-op nursery but nobody wanted to grow them a second time because it just wasn't worth the picking effort. After that the growers stopped offering them.
