Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate, regular leaf foliage.

Gardner’s Sweetheart Tomato originated in Will Bonsall’s Maine gardens, a truly legendary seed steward, from a chance crossing between Gardener’s Delight cherry and a plum tomato. The vines are very productive, and yield the most unusual lovely heart-shaped cherry tomatoes. When fully ripe, they have the richest flavour, a true heartthrob. My favourite tomato of 2022!  

Tomatoes are naturally quite drought tolerant, and yields are better when grown in the ground because their root systems are adventurous and incredibly resilient.


Days to maturity: 60 days from transplant.

minimum 25 seeds per pack.

Seed starting:

In our climate tomatoes like a head start - start seeds 6-8 weeks before the last frost (depending on your region). Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep, keeping the soil warm and moist. Once the first true leaves appear, plant up into plug trays. Plant outside in full sun once all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Mulch with straw or other organic matter! 

Tomatoes will do well staked.  

Companion plants: basil, nasturtium, carrots, calendula.
