Tomato Hundreds and Thousands

A red cherry heritage tomato on determinate plants.

Description

An excellent bite sized (perfect for snacking) cherry tomato from determinate plants that produce literally hundreds or thousands of small fruit from plants which cascade down from whatever you’re growing them in.

We grew this for the only time in 2015 as a comparison to Sweet Pea Currant which we had grown in previous years.

Definitely worth it, lots of fruit (a pain to pick and not suitable for cooking as there was too much skin) but great for picking as you went past in the garden.

Very juicy, but the juiciness probably overpowered the flavour. Better in some ways than Sweet Pea Currant (similar number of fruit but slightly larger). Difficult to know which is preferable, when considering the alternatives.
