Vegetables: Tomato (Cherry), Gardener’s Sweetheart - Solanum Lycopersicum
These Sweethearts, borne on trusses, each with 6–8 bright red miniature heart-shaped fruits with a nipple on the end. Because they will keep seemingly forever on the vine, the trick is to wait to harvest until they are deep red—they’ll keep getting sweeter and reach full flavor. Only then are they truly satisfying. Firm, hard fruits average 15–16g and don’t fall apart or crack under any circumstances. Bring them inside, they will likely keep for weeks. Ideal in shish kabob, they probably would also make a superb tomato sauce if one has the patience.
