    I grow or I should say, I allow to grow by themselves the Yellow Currant tomato. It sounds very similar to the Yellow Cherry except the fruit only grow to about 12mm round. They are prolific bearers and as I said, they grow by themselves and thrive on neglect. They're the only tomato I can grow here without fruit flies attacking them. They make a delicious snack as I'm working around the garden and are great in a tossed salad.

    Yeah the current tomato variety is terrific also, I mainly see the red ones self seeding in our garden.

    Fruit fly don't touch any of the cherry types of tomatoes in our garden including the larger varieties like Tigerella and we have a lot of fruit fly in our area.

    I grow the larger tomatoes in winter here and although the plants suffer a bit from the cold temps we still get fair crops of beefsteaks, romas, etc without fruit fly damage but as soon as spring hits any larger tomato varieties get smashed.

    Feel free to submit your own review Ken if you've ever grown this type...

    I got some seeds but I didn't get to grow some this year. I will try next year. I think I will enjoy this variety. I grew the red variety 2 years ago and they are cute.

    Should I admit I just can't come at tomatoes that are any other colour than red? Maybe not you might accuse me of being colour prejudice
