70 days, dwarf — 'Dwarf Velvet Night' has rugose, regular leaf plants that are very productive. The cherry-type fruits are purple in color and vary in size from one to three ounces each. Excellent flavor.

A "Dwarf Tomato Project" introduction, 'Dwarf Velvet Night' was selected from the "Muddy" family by Susan Oliverson, who also did the majority of the work and named this variety. Craig LeHoullier and Carol Knapp contributed to the effort.

Bill Minkey produced the release quantity of seed, which was introduced for the 2018 gardening season. Each packet contains at least 10 seeds.
Perhaps the best tasting dwarf!
This is a dwarf that I'll grow again and again. It's taste is that good. Sweet with enough zing to be memorable. But make no mistake, it is a splitter. Best pick them a bit early and let them ripen in your kitchen. They will still taste great. Hence 4 stars and not 5.

VSC NOTES: Here on the farm in Northwestern Oregon, we have not experienced the splitting Mr. White experienced. Here, our summers are long and typically absent of rain so we can control the moisture the plants receive using drip irrigation and regular, deep watering. ~Mike

Gorgeous little tomato.
Unlike another reviewer, I had no problem with the fruit splitting, but because I failed to cage it, the entire plant split down the middle under the weight of its branches. I somehow got the impression that dwarf varieties don't need caging and tried to stake it in its fabric pot. How very wrong I was. Despite being split open like a tree split by lightning, the plant kept soldiering on and produced not a heavy, but respectable quantity of small, meaty fruit with somewhat thick skin. The color was a deep dark blood red with pinkish overtones and greenish shoulders that the pictures on the website don't do justice to. These are super pretty, and I'll definitely be growing them again- this time in a tomato cage.
