Grew Sweet 100 last season. Many small cherry tomatoes that keep on coming. Even hot weather doesn't slow down production. The plant grows quite large, but I just trimmed back any branches going off where I don't want them. Doesn't slow down production any.

Red cherry, sweet, but cracks more than Sweet Million. Both are easy to find as starts, I'd stick with Million over 100.
