Spoon

Our most vigorous growing tomato in 2013 was Spoon, a very sweet and prolific currant tomato with hundreds of tiny fruits per plant. Racemes feature 20-40 fruits and often multi-branched. Plants grew faster than we could prune and continued to do so until they were stopped by the first frost. In their native habitat these plants would simply root anywhere the stem touched the ground and in this fashion they could travel!
