I believe she calls them pop cherry tomatoes. Let me go see if I can find her. BTW they are awesome.

Yep, Cherry Pop. Boy oh boy is this a producer! One plant has given me tons of tomatoes!

This is the first year I have planted this variety - I got it at the local nursery. Wow oh Wow - what a producer!

Times like this I wish I lived in your neighborhood. Update: HERDEZ sauces now here, but I wasn't positive which I needed so wanted to first check. Baking Nana, when you told me the green sauce would be hotter, I wasn't thinking it'd have jalapenos in it! Maybe it's just a MN thing, but to me, a green sauce is the milder one. I found a recipe that calls for green chilis and chicken broth that I want to try.

emeralds - traditionally in Mexico the green sauce is HOT - that is not the case in California - but these sauces are authentic, I thought the green sauce was the hottest of the 4. From mild to hot == Guajillo, Pasilla, Chipotle and then the hottest is the Verde.

Note - the green sauce is GREAT, just hotter than I thought it would be.

Thanks, bd.weld and Baking Nana. I'll look for the Cherry Pop next year. We had a very productive and sweet-tasting yellow cherry tomato that we were very happy with. Not so much with the other varieties we planted. Beefsteak, Better Boy, Champion and Mortgage Lifter were very disappointing. Armstrong Nurseries said they had a lot of people complaining about the taste of tomatoes this year. (North County San Diego area) They thought it might have been because we didn't have a very warm spring and summer.

I looked at all the ingred and thought I figured it out but wanted to make sure. I also looked again on the HERDEZ website. The one that's smokey-fruity or something doesn't sound good to me. What I'm leaning toward is that I have to first do it bd's way so I know what it's supposed to be. (Although I've nixed cilantro.) I just have to have plenty of Greek yogurt ready to bail me out.

Mamabutterfly - Don't feel bad, all my other tomatoes are a bust this year. Spider mites got the San Marzano and then spread to the sweet 100's and right on down the line. The only one that has really produced well for me is the cherry pop and the romas that are volunteers from last year. The Roma's are in the wrong spot, not staked and they are doing great. Go figure!

Good luck Emeralds!

Thanks, and b/4 I forget, I wanted to tell you that I wrote down your directions abt making steak and potatoes to Sparrow the other day. I'm becoming reacquainted w/ my cast iron pan, so the steak idea sounds v doable for me. What would you say is the easiest steak cut to start w/ (for med-rare)? I don't often cook pork and steak. Remember all my questions abt bd.'s recipe? ButI like the chewy potato skins from microwave cking so not sure I'll give that up.

Emeralds - Go for Choice grade meat - sirloin is fine - tenderloin is great - a thick rib steak is great too but I prefer those on the grill. The Select grade beef I have been getting is NOT good - go for Choice or if you can find it, Prime.

I think I'm going to start a notebk to take to the grocery store w/ me. Just w/ this and bd.'s sandwich I have lots of info. Above I meant to write "pork and beef" -- shows you how often I use them. Thanks again.

We conquered the hookworm problem so I had such high hopes for the tomatoes this year. When we lived in Arizona we put in a pool and the volunteer tomato that came up was the best-tasting tomato we ever had.

Mamabutterfly, sorry I didn't start a separate thread for Baking Nana. After I saw her avatar a few times, I was thinking she'd started this.

No problem, still emeralds!
