Tomato ‘Red Currant’
I grow these extraordinarily prolific wild cherry tomatoes in two half barrels in my driveway, so when I get home from work I’ve got an awesome snacky pick-me-up before I even hit the front door. Also, I eat a lot of salads & I love how I don’t have to slice these little guys – just toss ‘em in. At never more than 1”, they’re just the right size! Unlike typical cherry tomatoes that are just simply sweet, ‘Red Currant’ bestows a real tomato flavor overlaid with a hint of sweetness – totally delicious! They bear longer than any other tomato starting early & lasting through November. You’ll get zillions of them – they just keep coming & coming. Interestingly, they are a different sub-species (Lycopersicum pimpinellifolium) from all the other different cherry tomatoes. Indeterminate, they’ll grow to 5′ so use a cage or stakes to hold up all those fruit-laden stems! Matures in 75 days.
