How about them Apples...Berry Tomatoes

Tiny weeny miniature tomatoes. How cute! I am going to grow a bunch in small hanging baskets and then gift them, They will be hit with kids!

This vigorous rare tiny wild tomato Solanum pimpinellifolium is like no tomato you've ever seen before!
Perfect for baskets, window boxes or raised patio containers, the cascading plants live up to their name, producing literally thousands of sweet, juicy, bite-sized tomatoes in an inexhaustible supply throughout the summer!
They are the tiniest of the tomato family, measuring only about 10mm in diameter, sweet and crisp flesh, almost explore in your mouth, delightful and to die for! It is considered to be the wild form of many- perhaps even all- cultivated tomatoes. Great for use as a unique garnish,
much sought after by gourmet restaurants. 

Note that although these are a different species, they will readily cross with other tomatoes. If you are saving seed, isolate these plants.  Seeds found here....

Oh those are terribly cute. How's the taste compared to cherry or other varieties of smaller sized tomatoes?

Hi Melody
Mine are not quite ready to be harvested, but my Neighbor gave me some sun dried tiny tomato raisins, they were so good! They are super super sweet.

Yum! My mouth is watering. It will be weeks before we can even plant them here. Still too cold.

They are adorable! I find planting different varieties of tomatoes lots of fun - and there are sooo many tomato varieties to choose from! This one will definitely make my list for next season :)

It is really ornamental as well. Looks like red currant.
