“Dwarf Beauty King” originated from a cross between Dwarf Wild Fred (an F4 selection) and Beauty King (from Wild Boar Farm) by Vince Lavallo in 2011, which he named Beauty. Dwarf Beauty King was selected and named in 2013 by Vince. Dwarf Beauty King is a regular leaf dwarf producing lots of medium sized oblate smooth red fruit with vertical gold striping – truly beautiful – and with a rich, balanced flavor. Those involved with its development are Vince Lavalle, Craig, Bill Yoder, Kay Robbins, and Susan Oliverson.
