Cherry tomato I.D.

Two years ago I planted a type of cherry tomato in a spot next to my morning glories. Last year the tomato came back up on its own and gave us several little tomatoes. This year the thing took over the whole spot killing off the vine that was also overtaking the morning glories. The tomato plant stands around 7 feet tall - and has spread out. The tomaotes are very tasty - but it knocked out a couple plants I had hoped would flourish this year.

I only planted a tomato plant there two seasons ago. I don't recall what type it is - and am now wondering if it's going to be back again next year. If so I need to be a little more strategic about where I put the other vines.

Can anyone identify this cherry tomato? I'd like to learn more about it's growing habits.

Thank you!

PS: When I planted this tomato I had also put in a tomato patch with some regular size heirloom tomatoes in my backyard. I'm thinking it could also be an heirloom variety if that was the trend I was leaning to that season.

They look like Super 100's. The only way they "grow back" is if some of the fruit falls off the plant and the seeds regrow the next year.

No doubt - there's no way we get all of them picked or eaten.

I'll have to get my other vines out of that area next Spring, before the tomato takes over.
