Does anyone know of a good variety of grape tomatoes ?
I have some for the local Pathmark, they are actually very good.
I'm thinking of taking the seeds and starting there, But I don't know

I've grown the Red Jelly Bean with success in large containers
and out in the main garden as well. Great for snacking or
