From the Dwarf Project description:

Dwarf Saucy Mary (Kiwi family) – 65 days – Sherry Long created the Kiwi family by crossing Dino Eggs with an F2 selection from the Lazy family in 2012. Craig LeHoullier selected and named Dwarf Saucy Mary for his wife Susan’s Aunt Mary Kelly. Those who pitched in for the remaining selection and stabilization efforts are Robin Bort, Dan Follett, Bill Yoder, Bill Burke, Chris Mauchline, Nicole Diana, Peter Knight, Patricia Hippeli, Steve Carey, and Donna Marie Kudrak. Bill Minkey grew out the seed for the initial release. Regular leaf dwarf, produces loads of 4-6 oz Roma-shaped green fleshed when ripe tomatoes fruit with dark and light green stripes, excellent yield and very flavorful.
