Origin: Unknown

Delicious, tiny gold tomatoes, produced on massive, productive plants (up to 8 or even 12 ft tall, if given enough support). Believed to be a parent of the famous 'Sun Gold' tomato. Currant tomatoes are a different but closely related species of tomatoes, known for their high productivity, sweet-tangy flavor, and small size. They are also more likely to cross-pollinate with other tomatoes (which are typically self-pollinating), so if you are interested in breeding new tomato varieties with very little effort, this tomato should be in your garden. Indeterminate plants.

These seeds were grown by Dr. William Woys Weaver's Roughwood Seed Collection, which will receive half of the proceeds of each purchase.
