“Christmas Purple Grapes” is one of several dark cherry tomatoes I grew this year to find a replacement for Black Cherry, which just won’t grow for me. I have narrowed down to the two best-tasting and most productive varieties. One was Der Kleine Doktor, and the other was Christmas Purple Grapes. Der Kleine Doktor has the richest, sweetest, most jammy flavor, but Christmas Purple Grapes has greater productivity and a lighter distinctive fruity flavor. I will just have to continue to grow both.
Christmas Purple Grapes was the result of a natural cross between Christmas Grapes and an unknown dark/purple tomato in the garden of Tatiana Kouchnareva. Significant segregation was not noted until 2014, which was likely the F2 generation. This should be a developing variety, but the significant traits for color and size are the same in my growout as described by Ms. Kouchnareva.
