Winning cherry tomatoes

'Isis Candy'

If there was a consensus winner for flavor among all tomatoes, it was 'Sun Gold'. In theory, the best tomato should have a good balance of sweetness and acidity, but nearly everyone who tasted this one simply lit up with delight. Forget the theories: This one's sweet as candy.

'Isis Candy' is a sweet red cherry that received almost as much praise as 'Sun Gold'. And if you'd like to drop a yellow into the mix, grow the mild, beautifully pear-shaped 'Yellow Pear'. Some rated it highest among the cherries.

Productive and easy, cherry tomatoes look great in salads, especially when colors are mixed. Beautifully bite-size, they make perfect appetizers to serve with dip.
