About Dwarf Purple Heartthrob

‘Dwarf Purple Heartthrob’ was developed by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from an original cross made by Vince Lavalle between ‘Berkeley Tie-Dye’ and ‘Dwarf Purple Heart’ and named ‘Hearty’ family. The primary development work was carried out by Vince Lavalle, Bill Yoder, and Craig LeHoullier, and named by Bill and Craig. Stabilization was the collaborative work of Dan Follett, Ted Maiden, Mickey Pasco-Powell, Susan Oliverson, Heide Dolan, John Cook, and Bill Minkey. This variety was first introduced commercially by ‘Victory Seeds’ in 2021.
Rugose, regular leaf plants produce a very high yield of beautiful and delicious medium to large (4-10oz./100-280g) purple hearts with green and metallic stripes outside. Delicious, well-balanced tomato taste. Mid- to late season, about 80-85 days to maturity.
