        General Information: Red currant tomato has a tidy habit that will not grow out of control in the garden. Very small, sweet fruit detach from the plant easily with minimal splitting or tearing of skin. Very high yields of useable fruit develop on exposed trusses, making fruit easy to find on the plant. Fast harvest of single fruit or clip entire truss for beautiful fruit presentation

        Grower Information:

        • Stays compact and tidy, so it won’t take over like the other sprawling currants; easy to grow and earlier, too.
        • Branched trusses make for accessible harvest and fruits detach without damage for more usable fruit.
        • Very high yields of tiny, red fruit deliver very sweet flavour.
        • Best in-ground.
        • All-America Selections National Winner.
