Dwarf Mr. Snow Tomato
90 days, dwarf
— 'Dwarf Mr. Snow' 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 six to ten ounces or more, and are a lovely ivory color; though a pale pink blossom end blush develops on many of the fruit. The flavor is sprightly, balanced, full and delicious.
This was "Dwarf Tomato Project
" variety originated from a cross between 'Golden Dwarf Champion
' (a medium fruited yellow dwarf) with 'Green Giant'
, made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. Although well past its eighth generation and is a stable open-pollinated variety, it still may produce the occasional off-type plant.
'Dwarf Mr. Snow' was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier
after his friend and local newspaper
columnist, A. C. Snow, who is also a lover of great tomatoes. Other folks involved in its development are David Lockwood (Australia), Susan Anderson, Paul Fish and Bill Minkey. Introduced commercially by the Victory Seed Company for the 2011 gardening season. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
