The new date tomato 'Cupid' is something special. Because of its unusual plum-shape with brightly red fruits it is also called "Kiss Tomato". They just have the right size to be nibbled and a sugar-sweet flavour. Perfect to enjoy as a healthy snack again and again. 'Cupid' is well-branched, with cluster-shaped panicles and high yields. The small fruits of the grafted, plum-shaped tomato 'Cupid' F1 taste as sweet as sugar and are especially popular with children. The bushy panicles branch out well and form clusters of delicious fruits. The fruit weight is about 10-12 g. Because of the grafting, the tomato has a very vigorous habit and higher yields. Particularly at places where tomatoes have been planted before.
