Organic Summer Sweetheart Tomato, Hybrid 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!

Reviewer: Michael Kane from Port Crane, NY United States  
We were not excited by the flavor or texture. Good yield and disease resistance, but will not plant again.

Good production and disease resistance, could have a little better tomato flavor.

Reviewer: Pat LaPoint from PAVILION, NY United States  
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!

5 of 5 Very prolific! December 16, 2019
Reviewer: Angela from Johnstown, PA United States  
The tomatoes I got from these were smaller than I expected (more like a very large cherry tomato). But the plants were very prolific and lasted until the end of the season, despite being partially diseased.
