80 days, dwarf — The rugose, potato leaf plants of ‘Dwarf Big Valentine’ produce high yields of medium to very large smooth, heart shaped crimson pink tomatoes. The meaty tomatoes possess a well-balanced, delicious flavor. The plants average 36 inches in height, and, due to the high yield and weight of the tomatoes, require sturdy support. The ‘Ivalde’ family originated from a cross made by Soren Linnemann between the indeterminate variety ‘Vjerino Paradajiz Sjeme’ and ‘Wherokowhai’. Many volunteers worked on the Ivalde line, but Craig LeHoullier selected and named ‘Dwarf Big Valentine’, with Linda Black as the key contributor, along with Bill Minkey, Mike Dunton and John Dunton.
