Sweet cherry tomatoes with a complex taste.

Honey Drop is the cake of cherry tomatoes: an exceptionally sweet, well-flavored, and full-bodied tomato with substance. They are the ideal snacking tomato, small and mighty, with a fruity flavor and honey-like sweetness that beloved hybrid Sungold just can't match. Tevis and Rachel Robertson-Goldberg of Crabapple Farm in Chesterson, MA developed this variety, and we were introduced to it by our pal Jay Armour from Four Winds Farm in Gardiner, NY. He says of this tasty cherry, "I'm excited about having an open pollinated alternative to Sungold." Our stock has been selected for resistance to cracking, color, flavor, and disease resistance. In 2014, we tasted the Honey Drop alongside Sungold F1. 60% of our tasters preferred the sweet and smooth Honey Drop!

Honey Drop's earliness and flavor make it an excellent choice for those looking for a cherry tomato to grow year after year. Irresistible to all creatures who crave sweetness; protect from bears.

Growing Instructions: Start in a warm bright spot (supplemental light is recommended) indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost, then transplant to the garden after frost, when seedlings are at least 5" high. Honey Drops can grow quite tall, so support is necessary to keep plants healthy and manageable. Harvest the sweet, little, precious drops when they ripen to a golden, amber-yellow color.
