About Sleeping Lady

This variety originated from a cross between Budai Torpe and Black from Tula, made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia and named Grumpy. The variety was selected and named after the Legend of the Sleeping Lady by Sherry Shiesl of Alaska. Variety development was handled primarily by Sherry Shiesl of Alaska, with minor participation by Craig LeHoullier, and seed grown out for the initial release by Ted Maiden, Tennessee. Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds introduced the variety in 2012. Early to mid season. Dwarf (tree-type) 3′ tall, indeterminate plants with regular dark green, rugose foliage produce high yields of 4 oz., round to oblate, chocolate/mahogany colored tomatoes with excellent well-balanced flavors. Perfect for container growing.
