Tomato, Sweet Cherriette (Organic)
$3.50 – $6.50
Solanum sp. Red Currant. 35 days. Indet. Dwarf.
Probably an interspecific cross of S. esculentum & S. pimpinellifolium. A delightful discovery for us from an old packet of Peters Seed and Research seed given to us by our friends at Bountiful Gardens. The first tomato of the season for us in 2013, by two whole weeks! Beautifully branched, small vines make it great for container culture or hanging baskets. Flavor is reminiscent of a red currant type, and more tart than one would expect with a name like Sweet Cherriette. Fruit are small for a cherry but larger than true currants. We’re calling it an indeterminate dwarf, as it pumps out several flushes of fruit over the course of the season. I know it’s redundant, but so true I have to say it again: Sweet Cherriette is a delightful variety.
