10/18/17 from the Henderson 99 Cents store off Marks, but occasionally they have them in Kingman too. I bought the last three packs. I've seen them a few times in Kingman too, but mostly in Nevada.
They taste even better than they look! Sweet!
They brixed at 8 with a fuzzy line, not bad at all!

So they're from Mexico and I know that some people don't eat Mexican grown food, but I don't mind. I especially appreciate that they are Fair Trade certified. It's hard to believe that you can buy 3/4 lb for a dollar.
My own tomatoes are just finally starting to produce and I've tried a few cherry tomatoes and there's really nothing like home grown (I like acidic tomatoes), but these little romas are a great substitute.
I checked out http://divineflavor.com and it looks like Mexico is serious about food safety and producing high quality produce for the American market.
In 2000 due to outbreaks of Salmonella caused by Mexican melons entity Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has closed the doors of the U.S. market for Mexican melons. After several years and several discussions between governments of the United States and Mexico through its and entities FDA and SENASICA in 2002 they made an agreement by which the United States reopens the doors to Mexican melons from companies that meet adequate safety and health requirements. We are one of the 7 companies authorized by the Food and Drug Administration to export Cantaloupe Melons to the U.S.
I've read that many Mexican growers are switching to organics, way to go!
