‘Tennessee Suited’ was developed by the members of the ‘Dwarf Tomato Project’, from a cross made in 2009 by Patrina Nuske Small between ‘Pink Berkeley Tie Dye’ and ‘Rosella Purple’ and named ‘Tidy’. Selected and named by Ted Maiden. The stabilization work was made by Patrina Nuske Small, Craig LeHoullier, Ted Maiden, Bill Yoder, Sue Bailey, Doug Frank, and Bill Minkey. ‘Tennessee Suited’ was released in 2015 as the F9 generation. Indeterminate and vigorous dwarf-type plants with regular and rugose leaf foliage. Very beautiful, medium to large-sized (4-12 oz.), round and oblate, purple-black beefsteak-type tomatoes with dark green stripes. Excellent tomato taste, good balanced, rich flavor. Midseason, about 75 days from transplant.
