Our New Artisan Series. Are These the Prettiest Tomatoes Ever? It took California breeder Fred Hempel years to develop a brand-new series of cherry tomatoes bred solely for big, pure-tomato flavor and delivered in unusual shapes and unique colors! Bay Area chefs working in expensive restaurants rave about both the real-tomato taste and the arresting appearance: stripes and blushes in round and grape-shaped cherry fruits. Grow your own to experience the same remarkably sweet, juicy flavor as enjoyed by Western diners! All varieties indeterminate.
