Bonny Best Tomato

I am looking forward to trying this tomato. However, I have not had a chance to grow it yet, so I can't address my experience with it.

Oh, **** Yea

Delicious and everything I was hoping for. Exactly what the photo tries to tell you. They fit perfectly in the palm of my hand, perfect for tomato sammy's and don't grow like wildfire.
