Tomato Identification - Knowledgebase Question

Question by brgd

I started Roma VF and Super Sweet 100 from seed. I think that I may have lost control of identification of the varieties. The plants are now about 2 1/2 th 3 feet high and starting to blossom. I'm trying to figure out what I actually have planted. How can I tell the difference between the Roma and the Cherry plants?

The cherry tomato plant will be more vinelike and will continue growing and reaching; the Roma in contrast will stop growing larger because it is a determinate variety. You will also be able to tell by the tomato shape, the Romas are sort of oblong and the cherries are very round like marbles.
