“Dwarf Firebird Sweet” was not as sweet as I expected from the name, but it did have a full-bodied tomatoey flavor with balanced acid and sugar. Dwarf Firebird Sweet was developed in the 2011-2016 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project. My favorite tomato database described it as: “…from a cross between Dwarf Wild Fred (an F4 selection) and Beauty King made by Vince Lavallo in 2011, which he named Beauty. It was developed collaboratively by Vince Lavalle, Craig LeHoullier, Lurley Hernandez, Lindsey Ratterree, Dan Follett, Carolyn Keiper, and Nancy Ruhl. Named by Craig LeHoullier in 2013.” http://tatianastomatobase.com/wiki/Dwarf_Firebird_Sweet
