90 days, dwarf — The rugose, potato leaf plants of 'Dwarf Grinch' grow three to four feet tall. Its fruit range from six to sixteen ounces each, are oblate to slightly heart shaped, have clear skin that retain green flesh when ripe, often showing a pale pink blossom end blush. The flavor is rich, delightful, slightly sweet, with a bit of a tangy aftertaste.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project," ''Dwarf Grinch' was selected and named out of the "Fancy" family by Hudson England. Along with key contributor Hudson England and Craig LeHoullier, additional significant contributions were made by Susan Oliverson, Robin Bort, Dan Follett, and Dee Sackett, with final seed selection grown out by Bill Minkey. Each packet contains at least 20 seeds.
Nothing mean about this Grinch!
This is my second year growing the Grinch. Last year I got a late start and only got to harvest a couple before frost. This year I’m having much better results. I got one super early tomato and then a bunch of flowers that didn’t produce fruit (thanks, heat dome), but now my plants have so many huge fruits that the branches can’t hold the weight without support. Many are double or triple blossoms. I find the description of the flavor to be right on. I got antsy and picked a couple too early. They were firm and hadn’t yet developed a fullness of flavor, but a quick sauté fixed that. They made an excellent pasta sauce and completely outshone the store bought tomatoes involved. I wish they didn’t take so long to ripen, but that’s my fault for not paying attention to the days to maturity. Next year I’ll get an even earlier start.
