About Summer Sunrise

Developed in the 2006-2012 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Golden Dwarf Champion and Green Giant, made in 2005 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. The tomato originated as a selection of Summertime Gold 1 (selected and named by David Lockwood), found and named by David Lockwood after he and Susan Anderson did more selection work. Primary work on Summer Sunrise was done by David Lockwood, Susan Anderson (Texas), Neil Lockhart (Illinois) and Justin Morse, with additional help from Craig LeHoullier. Ted Maiden of LaFollette, Tennessee did the finalizing work and seed propagation for release in 2012. Gleckler Seedmen introduced the variety in 2012. Indeterminate, dwarf (tree-type) plants with rugose potato leaf foliage produce 5-11 oz., bright-yellow, medium-beefsteaks with excellent bold and complex flavors.
