I tend to try a different type of tomato plant each year and this year I grew 9 plants from seed. I was left with 6 after the darn slugs and snails had their midnight feast. They have yielded an amazing crop for me. Anyone who grows Tomatoes should try these next year. The fruit is a small cherry sized tomato and you would be surprised by the amount of fruit is supplies. I have enough fruit to cover my Mum, Grandma, cousins and my friends family. The 6 plants are still fruiting.
I dont eat the veg I grow but I just had to share this as I am very pleased with myself considering I had an appalling crop last year.
They are called 100s and 1000s tomatoes and are new out this year.,(well where I live they are)

Are these Tomatoes "GRAPE" sized, i.e. very small?

What was the average diameter of the tomatoes you grew?

They are called 100s and 1000s tomato and are by Suttons. '' The most fruit on a plant we have seen'' '' Grape sized fruit in bunches'' '' Probably the world's most prolific tomato!!!
I am trying to answer all the questions so bear with me here.. AS for diameters I dont have a notion. I put 3 to a basket and all grew. you get 8 seeds in a pack but i got 9 and slugs got 3 but I have to say they are amazing. Juts like it says on the pack. I bought them in my local hardware store..
