I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

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.
