Blush-colored orbs with tropical, sweet flavor. Everyone who tastes these fruits on the farm lights up, somewhat stunned by their deliciousness. Incredibly sweet while being more nuanced and complex than the standard cherry tomato sugar bombs. Early to ripen and crack-resistant, too! The original “Honeydrops” was developed by Tevis and Rachel Robertson-Goldberg of Crabapple Farm in Chesterson, MA. This exclusively pink strain was selected out by our friends at Fruition Seeds. It’s rare to stumble across a color like this in the cherry tomato world!
