Hudson Valley Seed Co Summer Sunrise Tomato
Patrina Nuske of New South Wales met Craig LeHoullier of North Carolina through an online seed exchange. They traded seeds, skills, and discovered a shared interest in tomato breeding that eventually became a cross-hemispheric breeding group called The Dwarf Tomato Project. With two teams, one in each hemisphere, they were able to halve the time required for tomato breeding and focused their efforts on creating small plants with big flavor. Summer Sunrise is one of their best. We received this variety was a gift from Seed Savers Exchange member Bill Minkey in 2013 out of a desire to see it in wider circulation, and we wholeheartedly agree.
This potato-leaf dwarf variety yields big quantities of medium-sized pale yellow fruits with a pink starburst. The excitement doesn't stop there, though—the flavor is incredible: tart, sweet, and full. A great option for those with limited growing space or for container gardening.
