Still rare and hard to source Sweet Valentines was released in 2018. This unusual F1 variety of determinate (bush type) tomato produces high yields of attractive heart shaped cherry tomatoes with a very sweet taste on small compact plants with short, well-branched stems 30-40cm high.
Classified as the world’s first ornamental tomato, Sweet Valentine was bred for growing in pots or containers but also looks great for growing in hanging baskets.
Has become a popular gift in overseas on Valentines day since its release.
