“70 days, dwarf — The rugose, regular leaf plants of ‘Banana Toes’ are very compact, reaching only eighteen to twenty-four inches tall, but they are very productive. Borne in clusters of four to six fruit, the elongated, Roma-type tomatoes are a beautiful bright-yellow color ripening to a deeper shade. They have the classic consistency of a paste tomato, making them perfect for sauce, paste, and preserving. Their flavor is mild and pleasant, and the fruit keep for a long time after picking without losing quality. The “”Speckly”” family originated from a cross made by Craig LeHoullier between “”Dwarf Tomato Project”” release ‘Dwarf Golden Heart’ and the indeterminate variety ‘Speckled Roman’. ‘Banana Toes’ was selected and named by Gina McDermott in 2017. Along with key contributor Gina McDermott, Craig LeHoullier, Bill Minkey, Mike Dunton, and John Dunton are the other contributors to creating this new variety. “
