B.C KO T

Tall indet. plants with light green foliage that looks both like potato and regular leaf (similar to the foliage of Cerise Orange). Flowers have exerted stigmas, and therefore can easily cross with other tomatoes if not protected from pollinating insects. Plants produce medium to high yields of small dark red cherries with outstanding sweet flavor. Highly recommended.

TN MA T

Bushy vines with hundreds of 1 inch red cherries. Excellent flavor that had me eating more in the garden than came to the house. Round, slightly plum shaped, and they keep coming all the way to hard frost. 70 days.

History

  • Brought back from Galapagos Islands by Amy Goldman (NY GO A), where she travelled with her daughter, Sara, and found this tomato. Dr. Carolyn Male asked Dr. Chatelet at the TGRC what species it might be, and his response was that it was probably a stable interspecies cross and not a true 'currant' tomato.
