Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Dwarf Mr. Snow - sliced fruit. 2012-08-30.


indet. dwarf (tree-type) plants with rugose potato leaf, 5-12 oz flattened beefsteaks with smooth shoulders, pale yellow color inside and out, very meaty flesh with small seed cavities and not many seeds. Very nice sweet flavor with a hint of citrus. (20 seeds per packet)

Seed source:

1. plant from Jeannine Chalmers, Coquitlam, BC, Canada 11 / Victory Seed Company 11
2. NC LE C 11 (F8, vial 11-31) (Craig LeHoullier, Raleigh, North Carolina) / WI MI B (Bill Minkey of Darien, Wisconsin) and TX AN S 10 (Susan Anderson, Texas)

Year grown: 2011 (#1), 2012 (#2)

Location: Zone 7b, PNW, Anmore, BC, Canada (760 ft above sea level)


I grew out vial 2819, F7 seed which I got from Bill Minkey and is one of the CV seed sources - as well as vial 3041, F7 seed which I got from Suze. Plant habit and leaf shape as expected - Indeterminate potato leaf dwarf, first ripe fruit in 82 days and 68 days for the two plantings (82 days for the plant a bit more shaded). Plants are still healthy and producing well. Yield very good, fruit are oblate but smooth and quite regular, in the 6-8 ounce range with a few larger, ivory with a pale pink blush on the blossom end of some fruit for 2819, and smooth, medium green for 3041, which is a surprise! Flavor is just outstanding - balanced, intense, in the 8.5 out of 10 range. This matched my flavor expectations - it is really a great tomato - both in the expected white, and surprising green colored fruit. F8 see of the expected white is saved in vial 11-31 and the green in vial 11-149. It may be well worth working on stabilizing the green - perhaps we can call it Dwarf Mr. Green Genes!
