One of my absolutely favorite varieties of tomato is called Mexico Midget. (Mike says that he would have to take sensitivity classes at work if he talked about this tomato). This variety is a small, grape tomato, about 1/2″ in diameter. The plant, however, is huge! It grows 8′ tall and 5 or more feet wide. And it is one of the most prolific tomatoes I’ve ever seen.
The tomatoes grow in bunches and can be harvested by the handful. I grow only one of these a year and get several cups a day of them. Well, it would be more, if I didn’t stand there and pop as many into my mouth as I do into my container.
And the taste! Let them get fully ripe and they are as sweet as it gets. I sun-dried some of them the other day and I’ve never tasted better. Most surprising of all, is that this tomato is actually hardy enough to withstand a mild frost.
