Indeterminate 60 days to maturity Lycopersicon lycopersicum

We love the endearing heart-shape of these super sweet, crack-resistant cherries that melt in your mouth.

Organic Gardener’s Sweetheart Cherry Tomato also has some of the most marvelous trusses we’ve ever seen, some hanging 18 inches and splitting into two separate trusses for dramatic cascades of fruit, often 20 to 25 per truss. With Gardener’s Sweetheart’s crack-resistance, we sometimes wait for an entire truss to ripen for the most impressive “on the vine” tomatoes we’ve ever seen.

Honoring thousands of years of indigenous seedkeeping as the foundation, we are so thankful for our dear friend and mentor Will Bonsall, legend farmer/breeder/philosopher in Maine, who developed and generously offered this variety to Fruition to share with you. Ten percent of this variety’s sales will return to Will so he can continue breeding fantastic open-pollinated varieties for the Northeast.

  1. Carolyn

    This is an incredible tomato. Disease resistant and very heavy producer. I wouldn’t really call it a cherry tomato. Much bigger than a cherry close to what a commercial vine ripened tomato looks like. I have 8 plants and have picked a bushel this week with another half bushel ready tomorrow. They hold very nicely and are not as juicy as a regular or cherry tomato so I have been using then for sauce to can. Compared to all the other tomatos I have in this year they are outpacing them all.

    These were a huge hit, with not only the adults, but the children. I had three plants grow, all producing an extraordinary amount of sweet morsels.
    I will definitely be growing more plants next year, probably around 10. I had roughly 1000 of these and did not see one of them split, like my regular sweet 100 cherry do.
