- Summer Sunrise is an indeterminate potato leaf Dwarf that will reach from 4-5' tall by the end of the growing season, and produce medium to medium large smooth oblate bright yellow fruit with a pronounced blossom end blush. Summer Sunrise is distinguished from the similar Summertime Gold by having larger seed locules, larger seed, a slightly more pronounced blush, and slightly different flavor nuances. The fruit of Summer Sunrise have a well balanced, full, delicious flavor. The plant seems to be quite disease tolerant and yields quite well throughout the season.

- Developed in the 2006-2012 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Golden Dwarf Champion and Green Giant, made in 2005 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. The tomato originated as a selection of Summertime Gold 1 (selected and named by David Lockwood), found and named by David Lockwood after he and Susan Anderson did more selection work.
- Primary work on Summer Sunrise was done by David Lockwood, Susan Anderson (Texas), Neil Lockhart (Illinois) and Justin Morse, with additional help from Craig LeHoullier.
- Ted Maiden of LaFollette, Tennessee did the finalizing work and seed propagation for release in 2012.
- Gleckler Seedmen introduced the variety in 2012.
