Golden Rave is a small roma shaped golden tomato. For me plants are healthy and productive.

I would say it is slightly sweet. Well not sweet compared to Sungold or Sunsugar which are really sweet but I consider it a lovely one to toss in salads or add to a grilling skewer. Of course good to just plain eat.
