Sweet Aperitif Tomato (80 Days)

This new open-pollinated tomato could be the sweetest you have ever tasted! We think it is sweeter than the sweetest we offer, Sungold  (#406). Why not try a side by side test and let us know what you think! A bite sized ¼ ounce morsel with a sugar brix of up to 13, balanced with enough acidic tang to delight your senses. One plant offers trusses upon trusses of bright red succulent fruit. Can also be grown successfully in a greenhouse. 

15 seeds


Solanum lycopersicum


Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

These were easy to grow and were heavy producers. Hornworms are easy to spot on these plants. My only problem is that they never made it into the house. I snack on them while working in the garden. Very sweet and not very acidic.

Since becoming a big fan of Pinetree (Superseeds.com) for several years now and I've tried a lot of your varieties of tomatoes. I give a lot out to my neighbors and it's 100% unanimous that the Sweet Aperitif is the sweetest tomato they ever tasted. Perfectly balanced flavor and the sweetness is just an added bonus. THANK YOU!

Holy tomato trusses Batman!

These babies did outstanding in my suburban garden. The amount of tomatoes on each truss was amazing and then the flavor...oh my goodness they are as sweet as candy and were tastier than the sweet hybrids I’ve been trying to replace. This gem is sure to return to my garden for years to come!
