Summer Sweet Gold
90 days, dwarf
— 'Summer Sweet Gold' is a mid to late season variety and generally is considered one of the best flavored of all of the dwarfs. The plentiful, medium-large (six to fourteen ounce), smooth, oblate-shaped fruit are produced on vigorous, rugose
, potato leaf dwarf plants. The medium yellow tomatoes, often showing a pale pink blossom end blush, have an intense, wonderful and memorable flavor.
When the original release of 'Summertime Gold
' showed too much of a similarity to 'Dwarf Mr. Snow
', likely due to some lingering segregation of genes, Craig LeHoullier
and Lee Newman began a new selection process. The result is this improved version that they named 'Summer Sweet Gold', which is exactly what they had hoped for with the original release of 'Summertime Gold
'. A bit smaller in average size and a bit later maturing than 'Summertime Gold
', this variety was introduced in 2015. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
