85 days, dwarf — 'Summertime Green' has rugose, regular leaf foliage on a dwarf plant. Its fruit are oblate, weigh up to about ten ounces, are green colored when ripe, juicy, sweet and fruity tasting, with a tender fleshy interior that sometimes shows a pinkish or amber blush when ripe. It can be difficult to decide when it is ripe, because in some climates the blush may not occur, so it is best to gently feel whether the fruit is still very firm or starting to soften.

'Summertime Green' originated from a cross between 'Golden Dwarf Champion' (a medium fruited yellow dwarf) with 'Green Giant', made in 2007 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. It was further selected by Dwarf Tomato Project member David Lockwood who named it after his daughter, Summer, and introduced in 2011. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Delicious and early!
Another winner from the Dwarf Tomato Project! Moderate production of nice sized slicing fruit. The fruit is getting smaller as the season has progressed. But the flavor continues to be outstanding!

The flavor is sweet, tangy, intense and refreshing. It tastes almost identical to Dwarf Emerald Giant (DEG), however it was much earlier for me. So as my supply of Summertime Green diminishes, Dwarf Emerald Giant has got me covered for the rest of summer.

Currently sliced on my cutting board for tasting, in addition to Summertime Green and DEG, are other "green when ripe" varieties; Green Giant, Absinthe, Grub's Green Mystery and Spear's TN Green.

Summertime Green's flavor is superior to all them, with the exception of DEG, it's equal, with the flavor being on par with Aunt Ruby's German Green.

I love that it is so early!

My Oh My
I've been trying to decide when my green tomatoes are ripe but today two of these Summertime Green were super soft so I picked them. Really nice sized too. I'm eating them as I write this and I have to say they're quite delicious! A very sweet tasting tomato that's definitely going to be planted in my garden next year! Thanks to the Dwarf Tomato Project I get delicious, beautiful, and bountiful tomatoes without the hassle of giant vines I can't control. Thank you so much!!!
