Tomato, 'Green Grape'
These deliciously rich and sweet tomatoes produce fruit with abandon! About 1-1.5” with chartreuse-yellow (allow them to yellow slightly) skin when ripe, they hang in clusters on compact vines that reach about 3.5’ max. One of our most commented on tomatoes at market that we never grew enough of (because we ate them all in the field, delicious!). Great for mixed cherry baskets. Despite the shorter vines, they do require support as they tend to be very heavy plants. Perfect for containers. For those who haven't tried green tomatoes before, we assure you: they are not just a novelty! 'Green Grape' and another we sell, 'Moldovan Green', have some of the deepest flavor of any tomatoes we've grown. Indeterminate.
