All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2016

At last, a currant tomato worthy of an All-America Selections Award. Candyland Red Hybrid is the first ever to receive this honor, and when you grow it, you will see why. Easier to harvest, sweeter, and more productive than others.

The first thing you will notice is that the habit of this indeterminate vining plant is neat and restrained. If you've ever seen currant tomato plants before, you know that they are quite rangy and dense, with fruit arising deep inside the branches, where it's difficult to reach. Candyland Red puts a stop to all that nonsense with exterior fruit setting, simplifying your harvest and making it easier for the tomatoes themselves to receive the sunlight and water they need for maturation.

The second improvement is the yield. Expect more than 100 fruit from every plant—Candyland Red sets its currant tomatoes in long clusters, like enormous bunches of grapes. The production is heavy and continues all season long on this vigorous, trouble free plant.

The third and most important change is the flavor. Each dark red fruit is round, smooth, and just about ½-inch in diameter, weighing in at ¼-ounce, yet every bit is packed with super sweet, rich flavor. You will quickly get used to grabbing a handful of Candyland Reds every time you enter the vegetable garden—they're a wonderful snack straight off the vine.

Smaller than cherry tomatoes, currants are just one quick bite: intensely flavored yet so tiny. If you are new to growing this veggie, make Candyland Red Hybrid your way to start. The garden performance will astound you, and the flavor will satisfy your sweet tooth the healthy way.

Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 4 feet apart, and stake or cage them as they grow.

Bursts of flavor!
Review by Tanner H
These little guys pack a huge punch of flavor! They burst with flavor and juices when you bite into them, I recommend eating them by the handful fresh off the vine in the garden; don't blame me when you have none left to bring inside for later! These will always be in my garden - highly prolific, incredible flavor, no disease issues in Louisville Zone 6/7. I had no issues germinating the seeds last year and the same seed packet seeds germinated for me a year later - so I think the other reviewer must have had a bad packet or other issues with germinating. You will not regret growing these, and you will have enough to give away; my friends now want to grow their own this year because they are so good.

Unbelieveable yield and flavor.
Review by Retired gardener, been gardening for over 40 years.
My Candyland plants are in access of 6’ tall. The yield is much more then listed above, more like 100’s per plant. The flavor is very sweet. I planted five plants in my tomato patch and we are overwhelmed with tiny current tomatoes. We even started mixing them in with the strained tomatoes for canning and surpringly, they are very thick, almost like a paste tomato. We will definitely grow again, but probably less plants. The only negative is that they are difficult to pick, especially at first, especially for older people. Highly recommend, our entire family lives them, the sweetness in incredible. I can provide pictures.

Tasty, resisted early blight
Review by NC Mountain Cat
I really liked this tomato last year; germinated without problems, produced lots of small tomatoes with very good flavor. About halfway in size between Tidy Treats and Juliets.

Germination and vigor
Review by Holly
I am only reviewing what I know so far. I am growing many varieties of tomatoes this year (Black Krim, Pineapple, Big Rainbow, Candyland, Maskotka, Roma, Giant Garden Paste, Green Zebra, Green Heirloom, Kellogg's, Park's Whopper, Brandywine, Sweet Million, Honey Delight, Sungold, Cherokee Purple, Big Brandy, Mater Sandwich, and Cream Sausage). I had to comment on these today though because they are the cutest little tomato plants ever. They look like little bonzai tomato plants. They are currently just over 1 inch high with 4 true leaves, symmetrical, deep green, and happy looking. My other seedlings that have 4 true leaves are in the 3-4 inch range. The seeds are TINY, the plants thus far are tiny, but really vigorous and I have had 100% germination. I will have to update later int he season to comment on performance and taste.
