65 days, Dwarf, OP. The Organic Tasmanian Chocolate Dwarf Tomato Plant is an inspired cross between New Big Dwarf and Paul Robeson created a dwarf plant suitable for growing in containers that produces lots of 8 to 12 ounce beefsteak type fruits that ripen red/brown/mahogany, and have that luscious full, deep flavor that brown tomatoes are known for. Earlier and more productive for us than Boronia Dwarf. Plants only grow to about 3.5 feet, but do become top heavy with fruit set, so staking is recommended. Part of the Dwarf Tomato project, of which we are big fans. Craig LeHoullier and other tomato breeders are crossing heirlooms with dwarf heirloom plants for the sole purpose of creating tomatoes that are suitable for containers and small spaces, but have the beauty and flavor of traditional, large heirlooms. This is one of their best.
