"Currant Tomato" for hot summers

If you can live with thousands (literally) of tiny, TASTY, blueberry-sized tomatoes, get seeds of the wild ancestral species Lycopersicon pimpinellifollium, nicknamed "Currant Tomato". INSANE vigor if started in winter or spring here in Tampa, spring in colder climates. Seeds are not too hard to find..some feel it is native to Brazil though it is found wild up into Texas. I've had plants sprawl 8 feet across and 4 feet tall as a groundcover.
