Finally, a delicious tomato with serious disease resistance! Summer Sweetheart is a large saladette-style cherry, pairing the rich heirloom flavor of Will Bonsall's Gardener's Sweetheart cherry tomato with Cornell's cutting-edge resistance to Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria resistance. Best of both worlds, indeed! Each long and luscious truss will easily ripen ten fruits and often more. We love our Summer Sweetheart tomatoes on salads, kabobs, roasted and stuffed with mozzarella as well as sun-dried. Enjoy our videos below and rejoice :)

Finally, a delicious tomato with serious disease resistance! Summer Sweetheart is a large saladette-style cherry, pairing the rich heirloom flavor of Will Bonsall's Gardener's Sweetheart cherry tomato with Cornell's cutting-edge resistance to Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria resistance.

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!

4 of 5 Good tomato but much smaller than advertised October 3, 2020
Reviewer: Christine from Minneapolis MN  
This tomato shared a garden with all blight resistant varieties this year, it stood it's ground and held up well. Germinated well and grew like a weed. Unfortunately the tomatos it grew were much, much smaller than advertised, more like a large cherry tomato no bigger than a ping pong ball at best. They were still delicious, meaty, and incredibly abundant so that made up for it a bit. They also survived three hail storms and had hardly any bruised fruit, so they are tough little buggers too. I would compare them directly to the Mountain Magic Hybrid except more abumdant, we grew them side by side and couldn't tell the difference in flavor.

We were not excited by the flavor or texture. Good yield and disease resistance, but will not plant again.

These little gems perform so well for me - it is like they are showing off!  Late blight does not seem to affect them and they keep right on producing even after a frost - such hardy little buggers!
