Currant tomatoes are the smallest edible tomato, each fruit weighing an average of just three grams and measuring half of an inch in diameter. The round yellow fruits are notable for their strong, sweet-tart flavour and firm, juicy texture.

They are thin-skinned and glossy, and their flesh contains two cells that tend to be seedy, but packed with an exceptionally sweet, true tomato flavour due to their high levels of both sugar and acid when ripe.

The strong, sprawling indeterminate plants are disease resistant and high yielding, producing copious amounts of the tiny fruit throughout the season. The miniature fruit hangs in clusters resembling red currants, hence their name.
