Dwarf Firebird Sweet

The vast majority of tomato varieties are indeterminate in growth habit. Think Cherokee Purple, Better Boy, or Sungold to get a picture of how indeterminate varieties behave. They are the varieties that need staking, caging, or plenty of room to sprawl. If diseases don’t get to them first, indeterminate varieties grow and bear fruit from planting until they are killed by frost.

Though most of the true treasures of the tomato world are indeterminate in growth habit, including most heirloom types, they are a challenge to grow in terms of dealing with the rampant growth of the vines.

Dwarf Firebird Sweet was developed 2011-2016 by members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Dwarf Wild Fred and Beauty King. Named by Craig LeHoullier in 2013, this variety is a vigorous dwarf (tree-type) plant with regular leaf, rugose foliage, producing 4-8 oz., medium-sized, attractive pink beefsteak fruits with golden stripes that have meaty and juicy flesh and outstanding full flavor.
