Tomato, Sunshine Cherry (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow Cherry. 60 days. Indet.
Medium-sized yellow cherry, high yields, good flavor. Great for market farmers. This tomato, along with Galina’s Cherry, is all a farm could ever need in a yellow cherry – it’s all we planted for yellow cherry production when we grew for market. Sunshine does it right. Originally from Peters Seed and Research in Riddle, Oregon.
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.
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.
