Indeterminate. 85 days, dwarf — 'Dwarf Wild Fred' has rugose, regular leaf foliage on a dwarf plant. It yields medium size (up to about eight ounces), oblate but somewhat irregular shaped, meaty, purple fruit that have an excellent flavor.

Introduced in 2011, 'Dwarf Wild Fred' originated from a cross between 'New Big Dwarf' and 'Carbon' made in 2005 by Bruce Bradshaw in California. This variety was selected and named by the Dwarf Tomato Project co-founder Craig LeHoullier after his father Wilfred, from a humorous misspelling of his name in a church bulletin.

We first trialed this variety in 2008. Now in its seventh generation, it is a quite stable, open-pollinated variety but still may produce the occasional off-type plant. Each packet contains approximately 10 seeds.
