Tomato : Burpee's Super Sweet 100 Hybrid
A newer hybrid of the favorite, low-acid, “Sweet 100” variety, the name says it all: it is Super Sweet! The breeders have added a couple of features we like: crack resistance and an extra burst of sugar in each 1” fruit. Super Sweet 100 is borne thickly on draping trusses. It grows TALL on indeterminate vines, so stake it and give it room, then enjoy a bumper crop of juicy cherry tomatoes until frost. It is perfect for pasta, briefly sautéd in halves with chopped garlic and arugula in olive oil. Serve over piping hot pasta; garnish with ground pepper, parmigiana and fresh basil.
