About Sandpoint

Developed by Dr. Art Boe at the University of Idaho and introduced commercially in 1978. Introduced in Seed Savers Yearbook by Glenn Drowns of Iowa back in 1980. USDA Description: “Ultra-early, compact, determinate, smooth fruit, resistant or tolerant to curly top virus. HortScience 13(2):200, 1978 Has concentrated fruit set. The plant has a dwarf growth habit and coarse dark green foliage. The plant averages 25 cm tall with a dark red, smooth and 4-6 cm in diam. Each plant yields many fruits which ripen over a 20-30 days period. Suited for use in salads and home processing. Resist/tol. to curly top virus.” Compact determinate, regular leaf plants produce plentiful crops of 1-2 oz., small, red tomatoes very early in the season. All fruits ripen at once, and after that the plant will set fruit again. Fruits are mostly round, but some are slightly oval or a strawberry-shape. Good well-balanced, slightly acidic flavors.
