70 days, dwarf — 'Dwarf Mint Steak' plants are compact reaching about two feet in height and have rugose, regular shaped leaves. Its fruit are borne in clusters of four to six tomatoes that range in weight from two to five ounces each, have an elongated, globe shape, and are light and dark green striped in color with varying degrees of amber blush and green flesh when fully ripe. The flavor can be described as being mild with a slightly tart finish.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project," ''Dwarf Mint Streak' was selected out of the "Kiwi" family and named by Robin Bort. Others who contributed to its stabilization included Craig LeHoullier, Lee Newman, Justin Sieglaff, Bill Burke, Suzanna Dzejachok, Bill Yoder, Steven Adams, Laurie Sutherland, Sharon Rossy, Nicole Diana, and Desire Sommers, with Bill Minkey growing out the final selection. Each packet contains at least 20 seeds.
Enjoyable Flavor and the Squirrels Agree
Plants were not given enough room to grow this year, but they did ok. I had them in containers less than five gallons in size, so keeping them watered and happy was a bit of a challenge.

Foliage was strong and dark green, and the plants did not exceed 3 feet in height. Fruit was variable in size but mostly round. Flavor is bright but not too tart. Makes a good tomato for eating fresh. Plants are still going in September, and one is still setting fruit.

I would grow this variety again, but with at least a 5 gallon container and possibly some mulching to keep moisture levels appropriate. I haven't had any issues with fungus, but a few fruits developed BER due to watering issues.

These were a favorite of the neighborhood gang of squirrels, but spraying them with hot pepper tea seems to do the trick.
