Organic Summer Sweetheart Hybrid Tomato At long last! Enjoy Cornell's cutting edge Late and Early Blight as well as Septoria resistance in a flavorful, creamy tomato perfect for salads, roasting and stuffing. Each luscious truss (see photo above) will ripen 10+ fruits.

Here's the whole story:

Whether you hope to harvest ten or ten thousand tomatoes, diseases like Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria Leaf Spot are affecting your abundance every season here in the Northeast. Though many cultural practices can reduce the spread of disease (like growing under plastic and watering soil rather than leaves), sowing seeds with natural genetic resistance to these diseases is the single greatest thing you can do to increase your success, whether you are an organic or conventional grower.

Martha Mutschler-Chu develops such tomatoes at Cornell University.

Fruition Seeds asked to play with one of Martha's triple-resistant lines and fell in love with a cross with Will Bonsall's Gardener's Sweetheart, an exceptionally sweet and creamy heart-shaped red cherry. The result is 'Summer's Sweetheart,' a large saladette tomato with handsome ribs perfect for salads, roasting, stuffing with mozzarella and drying.

Enjoy!

New favorite tomato! November 26, 2018
Reviewer: Anna Marchant from Cazenovia, NY United States  
The Summer Sweetheart tomato plant is the most robust, disease free, variety that I have ever grown.  The delicious tomatoes are larger than cherry type and were perfect for salads and slicing.  Highly recommend!

November 8, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Grosse Pointe Farms, MI United States  
Summer Sweetheart was a huge, healthy, productive plant. I just don't like the tomatoes. They are the consistency of rubber until they are very ripe. Unfortunately, they turn red before they get ripe so it is hard to tell when to pick them. Some were too acidic, some tasted like the leaves smell, some had a mild tomato flavor, and a few had a good tomato flavor. You never knew what you going to get when you bit into one. I just got tired of having this plant around and pulled it up August 15th.

These maters are the bomb November 6, 2018
Reviewer: Ronald Albert from New Gloucester, ME United States  
Incredibly healthy plants that staved of blight late into the season. They bore LOADS of golf ball sized, pretty, red, unblemished tasty tomatoes that held well on the plant until ready to use. I WILL plant again if you have them available for 2019.

These grew like crazy! November 1, 2018
Reviewer: Lisa Arnoff from Hyde Park, NY United States  
Next year I have to be careful not to plant too many of these!  I would call these a "cocktail" tomato in size.  Highly prolific growers.  Another hybrid that has good disease resistance.
