From the French to English translation the literal meaning of "mille fleur" is "a thousand flowers."
Hundreds of translucent yellow tomatoes on a single truss. Each fruit is about 3/4 inch across and very sweet. Plants are short (under 4 foot, compact, with many, many spreading branches. Cages which completely encircle the plants are almost a requirment.
Fruits hang on the vine for an inordinate length of time while still remaining flavorful.
This is one of those varieties that you will eat far more fruits in the garden than will make it into the house. The good news is that there are so many fruits over a long season that you can do both!
Millefluer is a good candidate for growing in a container ( 5 gal +), however, it will need a sturdy cage.
