The Fancy family originated from a cross made by Sherry Long between a selection from our Dwarf Project family Sunny and Orange Pear. Dwarf Goldfinch was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier. The potato leaf dwarf plants produce lots of medium to large (up to 10 oz or more) bright yellow oblate tomatoes with a well balanced, delightful flavor. It is considered a mid- to late-season variety. Along with key contributor Craig LeHoullier, additional significant contributions were made by Susan Oliverson, Dan Follett, Dee Sackett, Suzanne Dzejachok and Hudson England, with final seed selection grown out by Bill Minkey.
