Tomato – Summer Frolic

Early, Red Standard Tomato on Indeterminate Plants


Another of the packets of free seeds received in 2022. The description suggests that its “just another” small to medium standard red tomato, similar to Moneymaker, etc. (although it may be slightly smaller). The wording also suggests that it is “exceptionally early” although other places give “cropping from mid July”. So maybe its more like Bloody Butcher.

It seems to have alternative names Fourth of July or Independence Day.

We grew it in 2023 and, as suspected its a medium sized red tomato, tasty but its neither a small cherry (for salads) nor a large-ish (for soups, paste, cooking). It was reasonably early and looks to be a quite heavy cropper.
