Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Green Grape Tomato Seeds
Green Grape Tomato Seeds (78 days)
Semi-determinate almost bush habitat. The true indeterminate line was introduced in 1983 by Tom Wager of Tater Mater Seeds in Bakersfield, California.
Tom's catalog described it as "green when ripe fruit with the appearance of Thompson seedless grapes. Very sweet, oblong, cherry-sized fruit grows in large clusters and many are seedless. Only 10% of the seed of other cherry tomatoes."
Hands down this has to be the absolute favorite cherry size fruit of almost every tomato lover that comes through our gardens. People can't get enough of them. They are truly sweet, with very little acid or tang. Fantastic fresh eating or the perfect size for salads. No slicing required!
Green Grape's average fruit size is about 1-3/8" in diameter and are held in clusters of 6 to 12 juicy green tomatoes. If you pick them too early they can taste sour. They are fully ripe when just barely starting to turn a golden yellow in my opinion anyway :)
The famous tomato expert Carolyn Male wrote a book called 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden. She has this to say about green grape "First time growers of green grape have a tendency to fall in love with it after only one season. When you experience the unique spicy sweetness associated with green tomatoes for the first time, it's easy to become addicted."
California Grown Heirloom Seed Last year green grape did splendid and there was plenty for all to be had. This year because we had a cool summer, green grape didn't not perform all that well at our primary location. I'm of the mind they like the type of heat from which they came from in the Central Valley. Growing things on the coast can be a bit tricky, but the dry farm location had a bumper crop and it is only 12 miles from the coast! Go figure.
