- Tomato Plants
Tess is actually a close cousin of the typical garden tomato. In the class of Currant tomatoes, expect tons of tiny, super sweet little fruit. The plant looks slightly different too, softer and very rampant growing, almost like a vine. Fruit is produced on long, loose clusters. Be aware that this fruit is very delicate and prone to cracking after a rainstorm. Big-time chefs in fancy restaurants demand these for garnishes. Fun to grow, give one a try. Tess, along with Sweet Pea above, are the best of the Currant types. I will be discontinuing the others in the next year or so if I haven't already.
