Dwarf Emerald Giant Certified Naturally Grown Seed Certified Naturally Grown Seed

90 days, tree-type — Mid-late season — Another release by the "Dwarf Tomato Project", 'Dwarf Green Giant' was introduced commercially by the Victory Seed Company for the 2011 gardening season.  This new dwarf variety, 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.

Fruits 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.

'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.  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.  Now in its eighth generation, it is a quite stable open-pollinated variety but still may produce the occasional off-type plant.  Each packet contains about 20 seeds.

In an effort to keep this variety available to home gardeners, 'Dwarf Emerald Giant' has been released by "The Dwarf Tomato Project" (the breeder) to the public under the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI). You have the freedom to use these OSSI-Pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, if you save seeds or use 'Dwarf Emerald Giant' to breed a new variety, you pledge not to restrict others' use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives.

Great Germination!
100% germination rate in four days at 65ºF can't wait to try this tomato. Will leave another review later in the season.

Similar to the quality of Green Giant, but in a nice compact plant!
It was really exciting to work on this variety. This is one of the earlier dwarfs to be named, and proved to those involved that size, flavor and quality is indeed possible on short growing dwarf plants. To my palate, it doesn't quite have the intensity of flavor that it's daddy (Green Giant) has, but tomato flavor can vary season to season. As with all of the dwarfs, I eagerly anticipate the opinions of others who try out this great new variety!
