It's January, and that means that it's time to break out the seed catalogs, pore over the selections, and place your order for your spring tomato seeds.

High yielding extra-early yellow grape. Sometimes pear-shaped.
Suitable for containers.
Long life on or off the vine - pick a truss of 75 and keep it for a while.
