It's a VF Supersweet 100 hybrid. I bought a pack of those 3 or 4 years ago, and they've been my cherry tomato since then. The pack is now empty, so I'll need a new cherry for 2015...

Good looking sweet 100 there. They really show off with the vivid red color. Enjoy

Those are so sweet, and prolific.
For 2015, may I suggest Sungold F1, or Black Cherry(can save seeds from BC). Either way, they will both knock your socks off for taste.
