The yellow cherry tomato is an amazing plant and is one of my "fall-back" tomato plants I grow in our subtropical garden because it will grow strong and reliably when other tomatoes don't.
Fruit can get up to golf ball size and its slight acidic tang makes the yellow cherry great in salads, sandwiches, open melts, or perfect in general cooking.
The plant itself is indeterminate, which means it grows like a vine, and will sprawl out over a trellis beautifully. Clusters or fruit aren't big at around 6 per truss but overall the trusses are plentiful so productivity is awesome!
Due to the size and acidity the Queensland fruit fly will not touch the fruit and the plant is extremely disease resistant to things like blight, and target spot.
I generally don't have to save the seed from this variety of tomato as it pops up throughout our garden regularly from naturally fallen fruit so the plant is either transplanted or simply left to grow where it came up.
I definitely recommend the yellow cherry tomato for the home garden.
