Jasper hybrid cultivar

I tried this hybrid this year. I grew it from seed. It produces very small red tomatoes, and they are extremely sweet. Delicious! The plant had no problems during the heavy rain, and other weather problems. I lost 1 plant and another had bottom end rot for a bit. This plant had no problems and is producing hundreds of tomatoes. It is super hardy. it seems to be growing sideways though. It is in a pot and I had to put other pots with cages around it to support the growth. The only pot with a plant is the black pot. Again the other pots with cages were put around to help support the giant plant.You're looking at one plant. I'm going to try it in the ground next year. I would try this one, productive and hardy.

2013 AAS winner!
Disease resistances include early blight, Septoria Leaf Spot, fusarium races 1 and the dreaded late blight. Enjoy these little candy fruits early, too, just 60 days from transplanting, 90 days from sowing seed.

Next year I think i will try a different cherry tomato, I have so many of these, and they taste fantastic, but I'm starting to get sick of them! I can't seem to give enough a way. I need to start canning tomatoes. I'm also growing Indigo Rose. Looks great, taste is OK, not great, but a cool tomato.

RE: Jasper hybrid cultivar

Drew .. I like the color You mentioned they also taste FANTASTIC. What is the problem ? You've got a winner.
Maybe you need another color. How about a SUN SUGAR or SUNGOLD? I am also tired of regular small cherries. I consider them BERRIES not tomatoes.
