Just wanted to say...

...hooray for home-grown grape tomatoes!

That's all.

You may go about your business.

best eaten while still warm from the sun, right off the plant

Indeed, I manage a handful every few days.

You'll never find them in a store, tasting like that.

I carry the salt shaker out to the garden...

Yes!!
I'm just having these for the first time from the yard too. The cherry tomato plant next to the grape produces mealy fruit, but the grape ones are slammin'

Just remember: All it takes is one squash seed to take over all of Indiana.
Soon you'll be posting blegs, offering folks money to "please let me send you some!"
You have been warned.

THAT'S what we need! Biofuels made from zucchinis!

How about we make biofuels from the Algore's bloated colon gas?

We ended up with a yellow grape tomato that was labeled "Sweet Million", which was supposed to be red. No idea what it really is.

I ate some yesterday, and they were sweeter than grapes. Warm off the vine is the best, but I'll take them about any way I can get them.

I raise a "Sweet 100" cherry tomato, which I am sure is related to the "Sweet Million" GBW mentioned. Very sweet, but fragile- they often burst when picked, and don't keep well, which is fine, as they are best eaten on the way back to the house.....

All the varieties of grape tomato I have tried have produced well, and keep much better than the Cherry varieties, but the skins are tougher and they just don't have the flavor.....

For next year.
If you like tiny tomatoes try the Rooski plum and cherry varieties. I've been growing Brandywines, Mortgage Lifters, Oxhearts and so on all my life. Been raving about Carmello's for 5 or 6 years now, but the Paul Robeson, Black Krim and so on are recent faves.

These guys have good seed, by the way.
