About Dwarf Kelly Green

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 Barossa Fest 2 (which was selected and named by Patrina), found and named by Craig LeHoullier in 2007 after Sue’s beloved uncle, Edward Kelly, who had recently passed away. Primary work on Dwarf Kelly Green was done by Craig LeHoullier (Raleigh, NC, Patrina Nuske Small (Australia), and Michael Volk (Texas), with additional help from Lawrence Andris (Australia) and Sherry Long (Alaska).
Ted Maiden of LaFollette, Tennessee did the finalizing work and seed propagation for release in 2012. Remy’s The Sample Seed Shop introduced the variety in 2012. Indeterminate, dwarf (tree-type) plants with rugose regular leaf foliage produce many 2-7 oz., round and perfectly shaped fruits that stay green when ripe, with clear epidermis. No cracking or blemishes. Delicious balanced flavor, with some sweet undertones at the peak of the season. High yield. Plants grow up to 5′ tall, but stay compact and are easy to manage in pots or in the ground.
