Brandon...I see your post has at the bottom of the page the topic you were looking for, I think. And the ground cherry one I was meaning to search for
I always have some self seeded tomatoes coming up in the compost edges...most of the time they do well. I had some very small cherry tomatoes for a while that everyone here lets go wild...don't know the name though.

Matt's Wild Cherry reseeds readily. But other open-pollinated tomatoes will reseed too. I simply leave a few tomatoes on the vine until they are overripe and then throw them into places where I want volunteers next year.

I use the same method as Patrick.

One year I had literally HUNDREDS of tomato plants popping up in my garden. I pulled the great majority but the ones that were left turned out to be the fabulous, HUGE yellow tomatoes that were very low acid. They must have ridden in on some compost material donations from my neighbors, because I had never planted that type of tomato here - large toms don't do so well in the desert. Man were they good! Wish I knew what they were. I got one more year of good plants from some seeds but then they disappeared as quickly as they appeared so the mystery remains...
