"It's definitely a different eating experience from the average tomato," says Sapp. (There's now a red version called 'Sungold Red' available.) "
I just pulled up the 2019 catalog and there is no Sungold Red.

All of the above grow and produce very well here 50 miles south of DFW. I'm sure they would do just as well in your neck of the woods.

Salt, I'm trying to remember a cherry tomato you recommended one time. It's looks like Yellow Pear, only better tasting. Do you remember? I want to put it on my wish
list when I send seeds to Gary.

Iva's Red Cherry gets my vote. Smaller sized, extremely prolific, and great taste.

Hope you were looking for a lot of different suggestions. I have grown Reverend Michael Keyes for the last 2 seasons and have been very happy with it. It is a very prolific multi flora and I do not have any difficulty with splitting. The flavor is full bodied and tangy with a hint of sweetness. It will be back again next season.

Medovaya Kaplya is the variety. It looks like Yellow Pear. I shared almost all of my 2015 saved seeds. If I had seeds, I would mail you some, but my saved seeds from 2016 turned out to be crosses.

Not to be confusing - It's translation is, "Honey Drop." There is a different tomato variety called, "Honeydrop" I have grown both, and they are two different varieties. Both are good tasting and yellow. The Honeydrop variety I grew was from Fedco. https://www.fedcoseeds.com/seeds/?item=4106

I personally like Medovaya Kaplya better. I like the shape, and the taste is excellent. It's in my top 5 cherry tomato list. http://tatianastomatobase.com/wiki/Medovaya_Kaplya

I forgot to mention Fox Cherry. It's become a standout regular in my tomato patch for the reds.

Good to hear. I have some Fox seeds but never came to grow them.

Sounds great, but I bet it's crunchy...… (I'm allergic to "crunchy" tomatoes).

I'll admit that when I was reading about how well it kept I was thinking about how thick skinned it might be.

I don't think that is necessarily true. In my experience, many long-life rin-heterozygote tomatoes ripen fully to a non-crunchy finish (if you exercise patience).

I also don't think "thick skin" can be assumed.

Not a cherry lover but my wife likes Fox Cherry, Hawaiian Cherry and Ambrosia Red.

I grew 2 different red cherrytomatoes this year from the Danish Seedsavers (Frøsamlerne).They have both been around for some years and are not the same even the names suggests they have some Thai-connection.Anjas Thaitomato and Annies Singapore.The first have been bought at a supermarket having a thaiweek, it is aromatic and sweet.The second is from the Singapore Airline, from a sandwich served on board, also very tasty, have a bit of green at the bottom even though it is fully ripe.
