This was bred by Fred Hempel of Baia Nicchia Farm in CA and first released by Artisan Seeds in 2012
One of the new tomato releases from Artisan Seeds, it is extremely eye catching. They take your bowl of mixed color cherries to the next level. The fruit are slightly elongated and a dusky purple with metallic green stripes. Very pretty! And the flavor is special also, complex and sweet but not too sweet, especially when fully ripe.
This is becoming a very popular variety at Farmers Markets. They rarely crack and have great production all summer long. Great for roasting or grilling and they also hold well on the counter. Fruit average ¾ to 1 oz and are about 1 -1 ½”. Plants are compact and have great production.
