Seeds sent to Gary Ibsen by tomato grower Paul Middleton who was given these seeds by a farmer on the French Island of Oleron, known for its special microclimate that allows banana and wine production. Farmer shared with Paul that these tomatoes have been grown on the island for hundreds of years. Plant produces lots of 1 1/2-inch red, plum shaped cherry tomatoes with that are sweet; perfectly tart alongside the sweetness. Slightly thicker skin than most cherry tomatoes making it good for fresh markets.
