Indeterminate 75 days to harvest Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Finally, a delicious tomato with serious disease resistance!

Organic Summer Sweetheart Cherry Tomato 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 Leaf Spot. 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.

Description

Finally, a delicious tomato with serious disease resistance!

Organic Summer Sweetheart Cherry Tomato 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 Leaf Spot. Best of both worlds, indeed!

Each long and luscious truss will easily ripen ten fruits and often more. We love our Organic Summer Sweetheart Cherry Tomatoes on salads, kabobs, roasted and stuffed with mozzarella as well as sun-dried.

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.
