Dwarf Project comments:

Dwarf Caitydid originated from a cross between New Big Dwarf and Mortgage Lifter, Pesta Strain by Patrina Nuske Small in 2007 and named Pesty. Dwarf Caitydid was selected and named by Craig after his daughter, Caitlin, in 2011. Dwarf Caitydid is a regular leaf dwarf producing lots of medium to large, smooth oblate yellow tomatoes with red swirls out, and heavy red coloration in the flesh. The flavor is well balanced and delicious. Those involved with its development are Patrina, Craig, Amanda Fischer, Michael Volk, Doug Frank, Carol Knapp, Richard Watson, Shawn Conant, Simone Pennig, and Laurie Sutherland.
