Tomato- Sweetie Cherry, Heirloom

Solanum lycopersicum

This tomato has succulent clusters of fruits that grow up to 1" in diameter, weigh about an ounce, and despite their small size, have an extremely high sugar content... 12-14%. These are like the open pollinated version of their "super sweet" cousin. Being indeterminate, these plants need lots of trellising, but will give you a heavy, continuous harvest until frost in the Fall/Winter or the heat gets them in the Spring/Summer. These are on the more heat tolerant side, and can handle nighttime temperatures into the mid 70's and still put out fruit. Sweeties are a fast grower, and can give you your first harvest as early as 50 days. They are great for snacking right off of the plant, or in a salad. I've even been told that you can make a jam out of them, and you don't even have to add sugar.
