cherry tomatoes with tender/ thin skins

beth_b_kodiak(zone 5a)September 1, 2012

I'm looking for suggestions for next year. I like a tangy tomatoe but tender skin is important too.

Any color is OK too just want good flavor and a nice tender skin. What should I try?

My favorite is Sungold, no other cherry tomato even comes close for me. When they're orange, they're very sweet, tangy, and tender. Hugely productive plant, as well.

Thanks, I really like Sungold and hope to find some other colors that are similar.
Seems that a lot of red ones are so tough skinned they jump out of the bowl rather than be stuck by a fork.
Any more ideas/ suggestions?
thanks

The "Totally Tomato" catalog had a rain bow seed pack last year.
I have not tried them, but they are 4 colors of round cherry tomatoes.

I have a couple of Sungolds as well, growing in my yard. Amazing producer. Their skins are really too thin. Any rainfall and I'd say 75% the ripe ones at the time are bound to split open. They do, however, make up for it in quantity.

Highly recommended.........Elliot

Check out Lemon Drop- I ordered my seed from Seed Saver's Exhange. I like it much better than a Sungold, and it's a pretty light lemony yellow color.

Sweet 100's have a nice tender skin as well.
