“Boets” (Buyan; Boetz; Боец; Soldier; Fighter) is technically a compact rather than a dwarf, if you are a person who feels that a tomato must have a tree-like growth habit and rugose leaves to be classified as a dwarf. It is difficult for me to NOT think of it as a dwarf though, as the plant height reaches 1.5 to 2 feet tall, whereas quite a few varieties with the “approved” dwarf classification reach 4 feet or greater. Regardless, this is a great red plum variety, and could supply a person with much sauce with just a few plants in pots on the patio. The fruits are thickly fleshed, and the flavor is strong with some sweetness. Boets is a Russian variety from the Siberian Research Institute of Plants and Breeding. Very limited stock as I grew only one plant, and that plant was eaten to a nub by an ambitious tobacco hornworm before I could intervene.
