Default "Sara's Galapagos" Currant - was: Where To Find "Mini Pearl"

For the record a coworker whom I had regaled one afternoon last week
about the loss of the aforesaid "mini pearl" currant tomato sought out a
grower of heirloom plants (Silver Heights Farm) at the Union Square
Greenmarket and brought in to the office today a pair of red currants
whose seed is said to have been collected on the Galapagos Islands.
It's called "Sara's Galapagos Tomato", 85 days, red, currant and tall.
No scientific name was listed on the tag.

Now that sure sounds unusual!

Anybody ever grow one of these?

Oh! I think I hate you.

The lush verdant green I've just turned has nothing to do with envy, I
assure you. It's photosynthesis, I'm quite certain.


*googles frantically*

In New York City? What the hell are they doing having cool plants in
new York City? It's not fair! It's...wait, wait...ahHA! I have an
email address!

Now to see if they ever ship...

Yes, thanks. I did look at it. The site said they were all sold out of
currants, so I guess it'll have to wait til next year.

They are sold out of plants but they have seed if you want to grow your own.
