Dwarf Mahogany 2016 field notes : Compact, indeterminate, dwarf. Excellent production, good flavor. Beautiful, smooth, brown fruit.

“Dwarf Mahogany” originated with a cross made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2008, between an early generation Sleepy selection called Wilpena and Cherokee Purple, and named Plentiful. From the “Plentiful” line, segregate Dwarf Mahogany was selected and named by Lee Newman. The vigorous regular leaf dwarf plants produce heavy yields of smooth oblate chocolate (dark flesh with yellow skin) tomatoes that range between 6-12 ounces. The flavor is rich, intense, well-balanced and delicious. Involved – Patrina Nuske Small, Lee Newman, Craig LeHoullier, Susan Oliverson, Ken Jacobs, and Patrick Sullivan. The starting seed sample was grown and provided by Bill Minkey.
