Dwarf Caitydid originated from a cross between New Big Dwarf and Mortgage Lifter, Pesta Strain made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2007 and named {esty (an F1 hybrid). Dwarf Caitydid is a late season regular leaf dwarf with heavy yields of medium to medium large smooth oblate yellow fruit with prominent red swirls in and out, in the 8 – 12 oz range, possessing a sweet, mild, pleasant flavor. Plants reach about a metre+/ 3-5 ft by end of season. This variety was selected and named by project co-lead Craig LeHoullier after his daughter Caitlin, a trusted tomato taster for her dad since she was very young and now an accomplished gardener herself.
