Tomatoes are all about tall tales the biggest, heaviest, sweetest, earliest. But many of our most beloved literary figures are itty-bitty. This tomato would be at home in the tales of Tom Thumb, the Borrowers, Stuart Little, and Mighty Mouse. It caters to refined tastes and confined spaces. These miniature plants with tiny tomatoes deliver all the bravado of a full-size slicer in small but explosive sweet-tart bites.
Happiest in containers, Tiny Tim produces copious quantities of cherry-sized sweet-tart-tangy fruits on compact little plants. The tiny 1" red tomatoes are ready early and excel in sunny window boxes, picnic table centerpieces, and pots on city stoops.
