Cherry red, super sweet drops of deliciousness. After growing red hybrid cherry tomatoes for a decade, we finally found an open-pollinated variety that surpassed the hybrids in our hearts. When our usual red cherries started splitting in the fall, Harvest Luck stood her ground and maintained harvestability for two additional weeks. Large-fruited for a cherry tomato, which makes filling pint containers a breeze. Some trusses hold over 30 ripe tomatoes at a time. Introduced to us by our friends at Adaptive Seeds who received them from German seed steward, Gerhard Bohl.
