I had not heard of these before.
They appear to be bred and not GMO?

Seeds are at realseeds.co.uk ???

This is what Nichols Garden Nursery has on their site: https://www.nicholsgardennursery.com/store/product-info.php?...

"Open Pollinated. 65-75 days. Semi-indeterminate 4'. One inch red cherry tomatoes in huge grape like clusters. Up to one hundred flowers per tress. Quite striking to see hundreds of small flowers held above the foliage of a single plant. Plants are indeterminate bushes. Lycopersicon humboldtii parentage. Developed by Dr. Alan Kapular of Corvallis Oregon from a cross made by his daughter Kusra. Grow in the ground or a large container.

CENTIFLOR TOMATOES
Bred by Dr. Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds in Corvallis, Oregon, from Kusra Kapuler's cross of Lycopersicon humboldtii (obtained from a SSE member Rosemarie LaCherez in Australia, the grape tress tomato with yellow-orange 0.5" fruits) with L. hirsutum which has red fruits, clusters of open yellow flowers and fuzzy stems."

We grow the Mexico Midget tomato each year. It produces thousands (literally) of dime sized tomatoes all summer long. It's a great variety.

Sweet? Most smaller ( grape or currant ) tomatoes do not seem sweet.
I have not grown any of them.
