65 days, dwarf
—The vigorous, relatively compact, rugose
, regular leaf plants of 'Sarandipity' produce a heavy yield of medium to medium-small sized (two to four ounce), round, chocolate colored fruit with vertical green stripes. The firm, deep crimson flesh is mild and sweet, and the productivity and fruit size and texture make this a great canning or grilling variety.
This "Dwarf Tomato Project
" variety originated with a cross between 'Black Zebra' and a pink selection of the "Cheeky family
," made by Ray South and named "Streaky
." 'Sarandipity' was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier
after his daughter Sara.
Among those who contributed to stabilizing this new dwarf variety were Tessa Millesse, Paul Fish, Susan Oliverson, Ginny Bishton, Patrina Nuske Small, Amanda Fischer, Marla McClaren, Ginger Eisenberg, Carol Knapp, Jason Ford, and Craig LeHoullier
. Introduced commercially by the Victory Seed Company for the 2015 gardening season. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
