“Dwarf Sweet Sue” is such an excellent tomato that all three of us vendors in Heritage Seed Market have grown it and listed it for sale at some time. This is my first time to grow and to list it for Bunny Hop Seeds. Dwarf Sweet Sue was developed and stabilized from 2006-2012 from a cross between Golden Dwarf Champion and Green Giant. The cross was made in 2005 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. According to my favorite tomato database, “The tomato originated as a selection of Summertime Gold 3 (which was selected and named by David Lockwood), found and named by Craig LeHoullier in 2007 after his wife, Susan (who loved the tomato and is very sweet!).” Our very own Ted of Muddy Bucket Farm did the finalizing work and seed propagation for release in 2012.
I was impressed by two things in this variety: the fruits and the productivity. The flavor was sweet and low acid, yet not insipid. The fruits were juicy and refreshing. Dwarf Sweet Sue continued to fruit in the heat after my other Dwarf Tomato Project varieties had stopped. I obtained more fruit overall from this variety simply because it fruited over the longest period of time. It reached about 4+ feet tall in a 7 gallon pot, and I can see that it would reach higher in more northern latitudes with a longer growing season (mine is about 75 days until summer plant shutdown) and longer daylight hours.
