Tomato Riesentraube Cherry

Tomato Riesentraube Cherry. This wonderful old German Heirloom variety produces multiple clusters of 20-40 scarlet red one ounce sweet grape like cherry tomatoes on large and vigorous plants with many branches.  To say that this variety is productive is an understatement. This is one of the few original cherry tomato varieties that have retained the full tomato flavour that modern varieties have lost.  Indeterminate, 80 days from transplant.
