The Plucky family originated from a cross made by Ray South between Galina and Golden Dwarf Champion. Dwarf Galen’s Yellow Cherry was selected and named by Robin Bort. It is a vigorous bushy potato leaf dwarf producing very high yields of very slightly oblate 1 ounce (on average) golden yellow colored cherry tomatoes with a balanced, sweet flavor. It is on average an early season variety. Numerous Tomatoville members participated in working on the most promising offspring, including Craig LeHoullier, Patrina Nuske Small, Susan Oliverson, Melissa Fink, Rebecca Gustafson, Nicole Diana, Linda Pugh, Bill Burke, Justin Sieglaff, Georgie Montoni, Jackie Gadbois, Patricia Hippili, Suzanna Dzejachok, Steve Carey, Amber Schneck and Nick Bolkowy, with Bill Minkey growing the release lot.
