Organic Honey Drop Tomato
Love Sungold? Meet Honey Drop!
Fruition’s most popular cherry tomato, Honey Drop has all the rich fruit flavor we love in a gorgeous rainbow of orange, gold and salmon. Abundant and less prone to cracking compared to Sungold, Honey Drop is open-pollinated as well, so she’s delicious without the bitter intellectual property restrictions and support of multi-national chemical corporations as surrounds Sungold.
After millennia of brilliant indigenous seedkeeping, Honey Drop is vision of Rachel and Tevis Robertson-Goldberg of Crabapple Farm in the beautiful Massachusetts Berkshires and their tomato-loving children! Plant breeding can be done without lab coats, let it be known! A portion of every packet sold returns to their farm to support their inspiring work, continuing to select delectable, resilient varieties for short seasons.
At Fruition, we sow tomatoes in soil blocks indoors 2 months before final frost, early April for us here in Zone 5, germinating them on heat mats with ease. Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings.
