Tommy Toe tomato

This heirloom cherry tomato originating from the Ozark mountains is famous for its flavor. The superb flavor won it top billing over 100 other varieties in an Australian taste test where it’s a country favorite. If your desire is to have a cherry tomato that tastes like a true tomato versus “candy” this is for you. Exceptionally vigorous plants yield hundreds of large, ping-pong ball-sized red cherry tomatoes throughout its long growing season. This variety has a good resistance to most diseases. Great for salads and can even be used for juice. This is the tomato that you eat as you're walking through the garden. Also a good choice for cooler growing regions such as the beach and coast.
