Tigerella​

Fruit is smaller but is the best tasting tomato I have grown in years. Other reviews mention cracking and rotting. Regular watering (daily) will help to eliminate that in all tomatoes. I have automatic daily watering and I experienced zero blight or rotting with Tigerella and each plant produced abundant fruit. The skin is fairly tender (more so than most cherry types) and did I mention the flavor? Best tasting tomato available in my opinion.
