Heirloom tomato «Red Сurrant»Red Currant tomatoes are the smallest edible tomato, each fruit weighing an average of just three grams and measuring half of an inch in diameter. The round, red fruits are notable for their strong, sweet-tart flavor and firm, juicy texture.
They are thin-skinned and glossy, and their flesh contains two cells that tend to be seedy, but packed with an exceptionally sweet, true tomato flavor due to their high levels of both sugar and acid when ripe. The strong, sprawling indeterminate plants are disease resistant and high yielding, producing copious amounts of the tiny fruit throughout the season.
The plants have small, delicate leaves with a more acrid odor than other varieties, and the stems of the plants are petite and lanky. The miniature fruit hangs in clusters resembling red currants, hence their name. There are numerous cultivars of Currant tomatoes, both Red and Yellow types, including Sweet Pea, Sugar Plum and Hawaiian, which are considered to be among the sweetest varieties.
