Cherry tomatoes are fastest, easiest, more nutritious, hardiest and tastiest. Mine look like small red plums. I picked about 40 on my glazed balcony between 30 November and mid December when it is only light between some time after 9 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. It is minus 4 C outside but the cherry tomato plants are still alive. I do not know the type of cherry tomato I have. Someone was given one that fell off the stand in a store. She saved seeds, raised plants and gave me 3. I saved seeds from the bumper harvest and sowed them March 1st. As they grew I took cuttings which rooted within a week in water and potted them. Later I gave away over 30 plants to friends.
