75 days, dwarf — 'Dwarf Andy's Forty' has rugose, regular-leaf plants that are very productive. Its fruit are oblate shaped, brown colored with vertical green stripes, range from four to eight ounces in weight, and have a mildly balanced, slightly sweet flavor.

In 2012, Sherry Long of the "Dwarf Tomato Project," crossed 'German Red Strawberry' with Livingston's 'Dwarf Stone' and created what the group calls, the "Softy family." 'Dwarf Andy's Forty' was selected from the Softy family, and named by Susan Oliverson, who carried out essentially all of the stabilization effort; Dee Sackett and Craig LeHoullier provided a bit of help on the original Softy family work.

The original release lot of seed was grown by Bill Minkey and it was released in 2018. Each packet contains at least 20 seeds.
