65 days, dwarf — The rugose, regular leaf plants of 'Dwarf Johnson's Cherry' are early maturing and very prolific. The small, cherry-type fruit that are pink in color, pleasantly flavored, and sure to please those looking for pink colored cherry tomatoes to grow in containers or in small spaces.

'Dwarf Johnson's Cherry' got its start when Craig LeHoullier crossed 'Rosella Crimson' with 'Everglades', thus creating the "Zelly" family. Susan Oliverson did the selection and naming, as well as all development work, with Bill Minkey growing out the first distribution for the Dwarf Tomato Project. It was introduced by the Victory Seed Company for the 2021 gardening season. The variety is mostly stable, but it occasionally produces slightly larger, ribbed fruit on perhaps 1% of the plants grown. We are continuing to stabilize this variety with each generation we grow.

Each packet contains 10 seeds.
