Honey Drop Tomato | Hudson Valley Seed Company | Organic Seeds
Snack all summer on these sweet, golden cherries.
Honey Drop is the cake of all cherry tomatoes: an exceptionally sweet, well-flavored, and full-bodied tomato with substance. They are the ideal snacking tomato, small and mighty, with a fruity flavor and honey-like sweetness that beloved hybrid Sungold just can't match. Tevis and Rachel Robertson-Goldberg, of Crabapple Farm in Chesterfield, MA, developed this variety, and we have selected it further to eliminate the reddish off-types. Irresistible to all creatures who crave sweetness; protect from bears.

About the Art
Artwork by Marnie Jain. Using magazine cuttings of color as her "paint", artist Marnie Jain has given us this moment of worshipful craving and celestial aloofness between a hungry bear and the drooping, ambrosia-like fronds of Honey Drops.
