Summertime Gold is one of the 9 new dwarf tomato varieties released in 2011 by the Dwarf Tomato Project. In 2012, it became obvious that the released seeds were not too different from its sister variety, Dwarf Mr. Snow, and the decision was made to continue the selection. The re-selected Summertime Gold variety was called Summer Sweet Gold and released in 2015. Developed in the 2006-2011 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Golden Dwarf Champion with Green Giant made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia, and named Sneezy. The variety was selected and named by David Lockwood after his newborn daughter, Summer. Other tomato growers involved in its development are Michael Volk (Texas), Susan Anderson (Texas), Howard Kushner, Linda Black (California), Carol Knapp, Jeff Fleming (Michigan), Robert Fromm, Lee Newman and Bill Minkey (Wisconsin).
Indeterminate., dwarf (tree-type) plants with rugose potato leaf foliage producing 8-14 oz., yellow, beefsteak fruits with meaty flesh and small seed locules. The compact 4 foot plants are a good choice for small gardens or patio growing. Outstanding flavor, more sweet than acidic.
