Tomato Sandpoint

A red cherry/small standard open pollinated tomato on determinate plants.


A regular leafed compact determinate (about 2ft high) plant with small (mostly round although some can be more strawberry shaped) red fruit. It was developed in 1978 by Dr. Art Boe of Idaho and released commercially in 1980.

2020 Update: We’ve grown quite a few of these in 2020, we were “culling” plants about the time that “lockdown” was announced in the UK and it was one of the varieties that we had not yet got to. It is a strong, compact plant which we are growing outside (along with the other determinate varieties). The first fruits set at the end of May and it did extremely weel, providing us with a reasonable crop of relatively large cherry tomatoes. Something I would recommend to others (if I knew where to buy them from).
