Tomato, Santiam Sunrise (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. Orange Cherry. 60 days. Indet.

This is our ongoing endeavor to replace the ubiquitous Sungold F1. It has been an adventure because many gardeners and plant breeders over the years have tried to recreate the sweet, fruity, orange cherry tomato without success. Santiam Sunrise is comparable in flavor to Sungold with a similar sweetness, but not quite as fruity. Andrew likes it better than the hybrid because it lacks the overwhelming intense taste he finds tiresome. In comparison, he can eat Santiam Sunrise all day long. Tall indeterminate vines are productive and less prone to splitting than Sungold yet the skin is still tender. A continuing selection from crosses with Russian cherry tomato material. Please let us know what you think!

Geographical Origin


Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    Santiam Sunrise is new to us this year and it’s our favorite cherry so far. Can’t wait to grow again next year. Produced big, plentiful, juicy cherries, sweet with the perfect tang.
