95 days, dwarf rugose, regular leaf plants of ‘Dwarf Almandine’ are very productive, but it takes a long growing season to succeed at harvesting them all. Its elongated, paste-type fruit average about four ounces each, are a beautiful dark pink color with darker shoulders (clear skin with dark red flesh), and possess a pleasant, balanced flavor. Developed by members of the Dwarf Tomato Project, ‘Dwarf Almandine’ was selected from the Leggy family and named by Susan Oliverson. Along with key contributor Susan Oliverson, others involved in stabilizing the variety were Dan Follett and Craig LeHoullier, with Bill Minkey growing out the release seed.
