Dwarf Emerald Green

Developed in the 2006-2011 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Golden Dwarf Champion (a medium small yellow fruited dwarf) and Green Giant, made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. Craig LeHoullier selected the variety from a potato leaf dwarf in an initial growing of Summertime Green. Others involved in its development are David Lockwood (Australia), Lee Newman, Susan Anderson (Texas), Julianna Griffin (Canada), Roger Humphreys (Australia), and Bill Minkey. Tomato Growers Supply introduced the variety in 2011. The plants grow to just over 4 feet and are average producers of 8-14 oz. fruit. The green tomatoes are similar in flavor to its parent Green Giant, with an added tartness – not quite as sweet as Dwarf Beryl Beauty. A very nice slicer and good compact tomato for growing in a small garden or container.
