Early maturing and very prolific with small, cherry-type fruit that are pink and pleasantly flavored.

65 days, dwarf — The rugose, regular leaf plants of 'Dwarf Johnson's Cherry' are early maturing and very prolific. The small, cherry-type fruit that are pink in color, pleasantly flavored, and sure to please those looking for pink colored cherry tomatoes to grow in containers or in small spaces.

'Dwarf Johnson's Cherry' got its start when Craig LeHoullier crossed 'Rosella Crimson' with 'Everglades', thus creating the "Zelly" family. Susan Oliverson did the selection and naming, as well as all development work, with Bill Minkey growing out the first distribution for the Dwarf Tomato Project. It was introduced by the Victory Seed Company for the 2021 gardening season. Each packet contains at least 20 seeds.
Heirloom tomato flavor in a cherry tomato!
These have a flavor I associate with larger heirloom varieties. They’re not super sweet like a lot of cherry tomatoes. They have a full, rich flavor with enough acid to assure you you’re eating a tomato. I’m getting some 1 oz fruits, but most are in the 1/4 - 1/2 oz range. They are pink. The texture gets a little mealy if you wait for them to darken to a more red color, so eat them while they’re pink. Most of the fruits are round, but I’ve gotten a few with the fun irregularities of a beefsteak. My plants are about 4 ft tall and very sprawling in raised beds. Maybe the plants would be smaller if grown in containers, but I wouldn’t necessarily say they’re good for small spaces. Other than a weekly watering and tying them up when they go through another growth spurt, these have been very low maintenance plants. I’ve been picking regularly, and they’re still loaded with fruit. I will definitely grow these again.
