Tomato, Golden Currant (Organic)$3.25–$12.00
Solanum pimpinellifolium. Yellow. 70 days. Indet.
An excellent currant tomato. Flavor is more fruity than Yellow Currant & sweeter than Orange Currant. Currant type tomatoes are quite sprawling & require either a lot of space or a very sturdy trellising system as plants can grow to 8-10′. Suspected to be a parent of Sungold. If you plant a few of these plants you will have currant tomatoes coming out of your ears—in a good way. You will be sprinkling them into every salad, yum!
Tomato, Orange Currant (Organic)$3.25–$12.00
Solanum pimpinellifolium. Orange. 65-70 days. Indet.
Produces immense quantities of miniature (¼ – ½”) tomatoes similar to other currant types but with good orange color & split resistance. Skin is thick, but flavor is excellent, fruity & sweet. They delightfully pop when you eat them. Tiny fruits hold quality for a long time both on & off the plant. Very productive, tall non-shattering vines. Variety given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by Gerhard Bohl, a tomato seed collector in Germany.
Tomato, Sweet Cherriette (Organic)$3.25–$6.00
Probably an interspecific cross of S. esculentum & S. pimpinellifolium. Red. 35 days. Indet. Dwarf.
A delightful discovery for us from an old packet of Peters Seed & Research (PSR) seed given to us by our friends at Bountiful Gardens. The first tomato of the season for us in 2013, by two whole weeks! Beautifully branched, small vines make it great for container culture or hanging baskets. Flavor is reminiscent of a red currant type, & more tart than one would expect with a name like Sweet Cherriette. Fruit are small for a cherry but larger than true currants. We’re calling it an indeterminate dwarf, as it pumps out several flushes of fruit over the course of the season. I know it’s redundant, but so true I have to say it again: Sweet Cherriette is a delightful variety.
Tomato, Tomatito de Jalapa (Organic)$3.25–$6.00
Probably Solanum pimpinellifolium. Red. 70 days. Indet.
Extremely productive of small, tart, red currant type cherry tomatoes. Originally found growing wild in the mountains of Jalapa, Mexico. Reported to be late blight resistant. Nice compliment to Orange Currant & Golden Currant. Our original source of this seed is the current (& maybe currant!) Queen of Tomatoes, Tatiana Kouchnareva of Tatiana’s TOMATObase.
