“Brian Boru” was named after the king of Ireland (Brian Boru circa 941-1014) who was famous in history for ending the domination of the High Kingship of Ireland by the Uí Néill. The fruits are small, similar to currant varieties, red, and nicely sweet with a tang. The plant appears to be determinate or at least semi-determinate, and reached about 3 feet tall in my challenged garden.
I received the original seeds from a gentleman who lives in the United Kingdom. He wrote a description of this variety in a tomato forum, which reads as follows:
“Brian Boru-the last king of the Irish, a real cherry machine, churns them out by the barrow load, sweet as sugar, christmas tree shaped plants broad at the bottom tapering off to a self terminating point at the top 5 foot high, cuttings strike freely and bear fruit almost as quick as the parent plant, my little grand daughters favorite tomato- she has eaten about ten sizable bowl fulls of them all to herself this season, I frequently find her out in the garden with a bowl picking her own straight off the plants as they ripen.”
I will likely grow this one again with better care, as I was so pleased with the flavor of the little ruby fruits and the size of the plant.
