Summer Sunrise originated from a cross made by Patrina Nuske Small between Golden Dwarf Champion and Green Giant in 2005, named Sneezy (an F1 hybrid). Summer Sunrise is a late season potato leaf dwarf with heavy yields of medium to medium large oblate tomatoes, in the 6-12 ounce range, that are a bright yellow color with a distinct red blush on the blossom end. The flavor is outstanding, intense and sweet, and it ranks with the best tasting of all of the Dwarf Project releases. Plants reach about a metre+/ 3-5 ft by end of season. This variety was selected and named by project volunteers Susan Anderson and David Lockwood.
