Translated from German meaning “Blonde Head,” this is an appropriately-named heirloom variety. Blondkopfchen grows in multiple clusters of up to one hundred small, sweet yellow cherry tomatoes, resembling a mess of blond hair when fully ripe. And they just keep coming and coming all season long. Get ready for a lot of salads or make good friends with your neighbors by giving these away freely.
