Juliet is my favorite grape tomato. I love it because the tomatoes are very large for a grape variety and the plant sets tomatoes like crazy. I have Juliets to pick almost every day. I need a productive variety and Juliet fits the bill perfectly.

This is one of the most productive tomatoes I ever grew. Large grape shaped tomato reasonably tasty. I am not a big fan of cherry type tomatoes, but this one does crank out the fruit. Jenny did almost as well

This seems like a small plum tomato to me rather than a cherry. Good 2-bite size, very smooth unblemished skin, firm flesh, good production, no disease issues. But, not much in the way of taste for me, pretty bland.
