“Chinese Tea” is a prolific producer of small red round salad tomatoes. I grew Chinese Tea in a 3 gallon pot and it set a nice little clutch of fruits for me. The fruits were between 2-4″ with a balanced tomato flavor, not sugary and not sour, and very juicy. Seeds for Chinese Tea were said to have been given to John Mathews from British Columbia by a tomato farmer in China who reported that they were in his family for generations. I have seen this variety marked as indeterminate in other listings, but I have grown it twice now and it is determinate and very compact.
