- Honeydrop Cherry Tomato
Honeydrop Cherry Tomato
A very sweet yellow grape or cherry tomato. Open-pollinated version of Sun Sugar. Doesn't have the problems with cracking that so many yellow cherries have, and the flavor is extraordinarily sweet, like a white grape almost. Parthenocarpic, so it will set fruit even in cool spring weather. A real find. Selected by Rachel and Tevis Robertson-Goldberg of Crabapple Farm in Chesterfield, MA, and introduced by Fedco Seeds. An OSSI-pledged open source variety. 20 seeds
The Open Source Seed Initiative exists so that breeders who originate new varieties can protect them from exploitation and patenting by corporations. It means that the breeder has freely given up her patent rights in order to keep the variety in the public domain forever. The OSSI pledge reads: "You have the freedom to use these OSSI-pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others' use of these seeds or their derivatives, by patents or other means, and to include this pledge in any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives."
