90 days, dwarf — Mid-late season — 'Dwarf Emerald Giant', essentially a dwarfed version of 'Green Giant', has deep green, rugose potato leaf foliage and a very stout central stem, growing to four feet, and perhaps a bit more depending upon conditions. Fruit are smooth and oblate, ranging from eight to sixteen ounces, and barely change color upon ripening - though a pale pink blossom end blush develops on many of the fruit. The flesh is bright green, and the flavor is balanced, full and delicious.

Bred and released by the "Dwarf Tomato Project", 'Dwarf Emerald Giant' originated from a cross between 'Golden Dwarf Champion' (a medium sized fruited yellow dwarf) with 'Green Giant', made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. It was introduced commercially by the Victory Seed Company for the 2011 gardening season.

The variety was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier. Others involved in its development are David Lockwood (Australia), Lee Newman, Susan Anderson, Julianna Griffin (Canada), Roger Humphreys (Australia), and Bill Minkey. Although it is well past its ninth generation and is a quite stable open-pollinated variety, it still may produce the occasional off-type plant. Each packet contains about 20 seeds.
