Dwarf Golden Gypsy Certified Naturally Grown Seed Open Source Seed Initiatve 

75 days, dwarf — The vigorous, rugose, potato leaf dwarf plants produce heavy yields of smooth, oblate, medium-yellow fruits with pale-yellow flesh. They range in weight from eight to eighteen ounces. The flavor is among the very best from the "Dwarf Tomato Project" varieties. It can be described as intense with a refreshingly distinct tang, and simply delicious.

'Dwarf Golden Gypsy' originated with a cross made between 'Golden Dwarf Champion' and 'Elbe' made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2006 and named "Tipsy." It was selected and named by Wendy Montanez. Others involved in the variety’s development were Carolyn Keiper, Craig LeHoullier, Wendy Montanez, Susan Dzejachok, Dee Sackett, Susan Oliverson, and Bill Minkey. Introduced for the 2016 gardening season. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Guard Tomatoes
On my second year attempt growing vegetables from seeds, I tried my hand at these guys. They grew well and put out tons of flowers throughout the season but the few plants I had never had a single fruit. I'm not sure if I didn't plant enough of them or did something wrong. The bugs really seemed to love them though, so they basically worked as a guard for all my other plants in the garden. The plants themselves were nice a strong and a good size. Since I don't have a lot of gardening experience I'm going to assume their lack of fruit was something I did. I'd be interested to see if anyone else has gotten fruit from them.

VSC Notes: I can assure you that we get loads of fruit from our plants; elsewise we wouldn't be able to offer their seeds. :) The issue you experience was likely one of timing. Where you live in Texas, it gets hot. And although tomato flowers are biologically "perfect" (they need no help pollinating themselves nor are more than one plant needed), their pollen is sensitive to heat so if the pollen is sterilized, sexual reproduction can't happen and fruit won't form. Check with local Master Gardeners for information about the best time to plant and grow tomatoes in your area.

One of my favorite yellow tomatoes - indeterminate or dwarf!
The Tipsy family just keeps on pleasing. However - I've found varieties from this family can be a bit more sensitive to extreme weather conditions. The gorgeous potato leaf plants of this variety provide good foliage cover for the medium sized, smooth bright yellow tomatoes that have high yield potential. The flavor is really quite glorious - it has it all - balance, sweetness, tartness and intensity.
