Tomato, Santiam Sunrise (Organic)
$3.50 – $28.00
Solanum lycopersicum. Orange Cherry. 70 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 old 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!
