Best Tomato Choice
Reviewed By: Alan Fricker (Fargo, ND)
2013 is the first year I tried Gurney seeds. My wife wanted to try the chocolate cherry, so I ordered a package. The North Dakota growing season got off to a bad start, so we didn't have as many plants as we'd hoped for. But the ones that made it and produced tomatoes were absolutely great!!!!! My wife told me after the first one that I HAD to order again for 2014's growing season! So there will be an order for next spring!

Great Tasting Tomatoes
Reviewed By: Mike (Riverside, Rhode Island)
I didn't know what to think of these tomatoes but I tried them anyway. The plants ended up producing heavy yields of fruit and they taste great. Everyone I have shared them with have liked them as well.

dried candy
Reviewed By: Dawn Bricker (Long Beach, CA)
First year growing Chocolates and I was astounded at the heavy yield! The flavor is outstanding, as well. I had so many tomatoes that I dehydrated them in a food dryer and ate them as snacks. I offer them to friends as a dried fruit and they go ape, asking what kind of fruit they are. They are surprised to learn they are the choc. cherry tomatoes. I will grow these each and every year as I eat them dried in the winter with spiced corn chips as a wonderfully delicious snack treat and also as a dried pasta tomato. If you've never grown these you should. Prepare to be delighted!
