Dwarf Sweet Sue Certified Naturally Grown Seed Certified Naturally Grown Seed

80 days, indeterminate dwarf — 'Dwarf Sweet Sue' is a rugose, potato leaf dwarf that will reach from four to five feet tall by the end of the growing season, and produces variably shaped (round to oblate), smooth, bright yellow fruit in the five to eighteen ounce range.  When very ripe, they take on a pronounced pink blossom end blush. The fruit have a well balanced, full, delicious flavor with particularly sweet overtones. 'Dwarf Sweet Sue' seems to be quite disease tolerant and one of the more prolific of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" varieties.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" as a selection out of the "Sneezy family" ('Golden Dwarf Champion' and 'Green Giant', cross made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2005). The tomato originated as a selection of 'Summertime Gold' and was found and named by Craig in 2007 after his wife, Susan (who loved the tomato and is very sweet!)

Primary work on 'Dwarf Sweet Sue' was done by Craig, David, Patrina, Michael Volk, and Susan Anderson, with additional help from Russell Pietzch (Australia), Stephanie Gernert, Martha Hufford, Ruth TenBrink, Paul Fish, and Carol Knapp. Ted Maiden did the finalizing work and seed propagation for is 2012 release.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Nice Yellow
This taller dwarf plant (almost six feet tall for me) produced a good yield of medium/large sized yellow fruit... some of which featured a light pink starburst as the blossom end.

We did have nearly four weeks of extreme heat for this area (consistent mid-to-upper 90s) and this resulted in significant blossom drop. But after the temperature returned to normal (in the 80s), the production increased. All in all, this plant should produce a very good yield under normal conditions.

Most of the fruit was in the seven-to-eight ounce range, though a few were over twelve ounces. And, despite its name, the fruit was more acidic than 'sweet'. Of course, that could very well be due to the environmental stress of the month-long heatwave.
