Dwarf Champion Certified Naturally Grown Seed
80 days, tree-type — A very old mid-season, nineteenth-century slicing tomato variety with good flavor and texture. Tastes slightly tangy but is mild and has sweet overtones. The plants are compact with rugose leaves producing ample amounts of three to eight ounce, pink colored fruits.

Introduced in the 1889 Maule's Seed Annual.  Although A. W. Livingston was careful not to claim credit for releasing the variety, their 1896 catalog did describe it as follows:
"We make a specialty of this grand and very distinct variety ad have grown a number of acres every year since its introduction. A single plant of it was found some ten years ago in a field of our Acmes. It is well adapted for forcing in vegetable houses, because of its dwarf and compact growth, the plants growing stiff and upright, with stiff-jointed stems, the foliage of and unusually dark green color, thick and corrugated."
'Dwarf Champion' is one of the first named tree-type varieties. It was selected from a cross between a now unknown variety and 'Tomato de Laye'.[1]  Our parent stock source was GRIN accession number PI 270180.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

  1. 'Tomato de Laye' originated in a garden at Chateau de Laye, France in 1862.  Vilmorin-Andrieu & Co. of Paris, France introduced a variety they called "Tree Tomato" in about 1865.  It was reportedly very similar to 'Dwarf Champion'.
