    This open-pollinated variety is known for its firm, crack-free, (1 1/4-inch-diameter) fruits. 'Large Red Cherry' was second to 'Super Sweet 100' in flavor and overall quality, but testers loved the large size and good flavor. "It had excellent growth, large fruits that rarely cracked and a fine tomato flavor," reports Gerald Holmes of Roxton, Texas. Some testers even used 'Large Red Cherry' as a slicing tomato in small sandwiches and liked the fact it produced fewer but bigger fruits.
