Curious, has anyone grown the Spoon Tomato?  Sounds like an interesting novelty, but wondering if it is worth the space it takes?

"The spoon is the worlds smallest tomato.  The tomatoes are about the size of a red current.  The spoon is a 70 day indeterminate tomato that makes the cuties little cascades of current size tomatoes. The tomatoes themselves are juicy and are tight little fruit. They pop in your mouth when you bite down on them.  The plant is large with long vines that make lots and lots of these little babies.  This is a fun variety for kids and look great in a salad.  This is a very rare variety. The spoon seeds are very small. You will delight friends with these little sweet flavor bursts."

It's definitely a novelty! Maybe worth it if there is a place to grow them out of the beds and young grandchildren.

Spoon Tomato Empty Jury's still out

Post  annebury 7/27/2021, 3:15 pm

I'm growing two spoon tomato plants this year.  They are definitely a novelty, but they do take up space that a "real" tomato might take.  There are lots and lots of fruit.  I don't find them as sweet or tender as my sweet millions.

I have a Candyland Red variety of spoon tomato plant in my square foot garden. I've been cutting the plant back because it is getting so tall. The tiny tomatoes taste good but there are way too many of them for just my husband and I to eat. They also fall off the plant very easily. I'm not growing it again. Next year, I plan to grow a dwarf variety of small tomatoes.

I bought some "red currant tomato" seeds.  I'm wondering if they are the same thing as spoon tomatoes?

https://www.ufseeds.com/product/red-currant-currant-seeds/TORC.html

I initially bought them because I mistakenly thought they were red currants, but then realized they are a type of tomato.  I will try them next year.  I'm happy to share some seeds if anyone else wants to try them.

I've grown that's wild cherry and red and yellow currant tomatoes and I think they're perfect for salads. It's very true that they will take a lot of room if you don't prune them and if you prune them you don't get as many tomatoes. :-) If you don't have lots of friends to share them with or a big family you would only want to grow one plant because they are certainly prolific! My favorite way to harvest them is to cut the little sprays off of the vine because a bunch of them will ripen at a time and that's an easy way to harvest.

Do they have to be trellised? Or can they grow in a cage?
