Micro Dwarf Tomatoes
« on: 2021-12-25, 09:19:41 PM »
I think we need a dedicated thread for Micro Dwarf Tomatoes.

My experience with Micro Dwarfs is first the Lizzano Micro Dwarf I got as a gift. Not sure if Lizzano F1 really segregated to a micro dwarf or not though. Kind of want to repeat the experiment and find out!

Then in 2021 I have grown Aztek a true rugose micro dwarf yellow regular leaf, Pinnochio a true rugose micro dwarf red regular leaf, and Gold Pearl a non- rugose micro dwarf.

A few other varieties are fairly small and are sometimes grown in baskets or pots or extreme short season climates including Sweet Cherriette and Anmore Dewdrop amongst others but these like Gold Pearl are non-rugose

One of my primary thoughts on these is that they will be great for use in the science classroom.
Western Montana garden, glacial lake Missoula sediment lacustrian parent material and shallow 7" silty clay loam mollisoil topsoil sometimes with added sand in places. Zone 6A with 100 to 130 frost free days
