- Developed in the 2007-2017 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from the Wishful line. Patrina Nuske Small created the Wishful family in 2007 by crossing what ended up being a crossed plant of Farmers Market Bicolor with Dwarf Recessive (cross). Susan Oliverson did the majority of the work on this line and selected and named Dwarf Franklin County. Other contributors are Craig LeHoullier, Jeff Bayes, and Jay Scott, with seed production carried out by Bill Minkey in 2017.
