Has anyone grown Sweet Treats hybrid?

MaterexJanuary 4, 2012

I bought seed primarily because they were expensive (10 seeds for $5.95)I know, odd reason. Anyway, they are just starting to produce and are lovely, a large dark pink cherry. I can't say that I'm really keen on their taste, possibly that will improve. Hadn't noticed anyone mentioning them, so I thought I would.

I think we may have had a frost last night, too early to survey the damage. I have about 110 plants, 10 varieties, it will be interesting to see who took it the best/worse.

Distressing, yes, but having come from generations of Indiana farmers I know its all a gamble.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

They tend to do best flavorwise when the night time temps are higher. Also, being up north, growing them in the summer (when the light quality and duration is different).

I prefer Sakata's precursor variety 'Sweet Quartz" but 'Sweet Hearts' has added firmness to reduce bursting (they burst which is technically different than cracking). This made it more attractive to a larger seed market.
