A tomato gem ideal for containers
Dwarf Beryl Beauty is an early-mid season potato leaf dwarf tomato from the DWARF TOMATO PROJECT and originated from a cross made by Patrina Nuske Small between Golden Dwarf Champion and Green Giant in 2005, named Sneezy. Dwarf Beryl Beauty produces large yields of medium small to medium smooth round fruit, flattened, light green with a beautiful green flesh that will exhibit a pale pink blossom end blush when fully ripe and weigh between 80-250 g. The Dwarf Beryl tomato has very good taste, subtle flavors, and is extra in salads.
This variety was selected and named by project co-leader Craig LeHoullier after the gem stone Beryl. This variety has been pledged to the OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) in 2017. OSSI is working to maintain fair and open access to plant genetic diversity worldwide and ensuring freedom to use these resources for farmers, gardeners, breeders, and communities of this and future generations.
