Sweet Scarlet Dwarf Open Source Seed Initiative

90 days, dwarf — The vigorous, dwarf, rugose, potato leaf plants produce a heavy yield of medium to medium large sized (six to sixteen ounces) oblate, smooth red fruit, possessing a superb, intense, complex flavor – one of the very best flavored of all of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" varieties. Due to the challenge of stabilizing the dominant tomato color (red), don’t be surprised if you find an occasional plant producing yellow or orange fruit; be sure to try them, because they will likely be just as delicious.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" as a selection out of the "Tipsy family" ('Elbe' and 'Golden Dwarf Champion', cross made by Patrina Nuske Small of Australia). 'Sweet Scarlet Dwarf' was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier. Among those who contributed to stabilizing 'Sweet Scarlet Dwarf' are Jon Schmuck, Susan Oliverson, Michael Volk, Susan Barber, Patrina Nuske Small, Steve McClaren, Marla McClaren, Dee Sackett, Scott Stough, Ginny Bishton, Wendy Montanez, Amanda Fischer, Linda Black, Bobby Whicker, Kathy Wolfe, Paul Fish, Kay Robbins, and Bill Minkey. Introduced in 2015. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
