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.
