Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Johnny Jumpup - sliced fruit. 2014-08-04.


Compact determinate plants with regular foliage. Leaves are relatively small, compared to many other tomato varieties. Round and slightly oblate small red fruits, 1-2 oz, with some green shoulders. Very good balanced flavor. Early fruit set and maturity. We can certainty say that these compact plants produce more fruits than foliage!
