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!

Sweetheart broke my heart September 15, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Libertyville, IL United States  
Actually the few tomatoes this plant produced were okay....I'd say very average.  It wasn't hit by disease either, but I wouldn't grow again.

Great flavor and disease resistance. September 4, 2019
Reviewer: Tim from Hamilton, Ontario  
I love that this and the brandywise tomatoes not only have great flavor and disease resistance, but both are indeterminate so they can keep growing as long as the season permits. It did get early blight but the progression was slow and would have knocked out most heirlooms seeing as we had a wet early summer. My go-to tomatoes for flavor and disease resistance are this one, the Brandywise, Defiant, Mountain Magic, Matt's Wild Cherry and Lemon Drop.

Reviewer: Kimberly Slater from Fairport, NY  
Very excited to be growing many tomatoes from Fruition this year, but particularly excited about these little beauties. My plant looks to have many tomatoes coming in and I cannot wait for the first bites of these!!

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!
