“90 days, dwarf — The rugose, potato leaf plants of ‘Dwarf Grinch’ grow three to four feet tall. Its fruit range from six to sixteen ounces each, are oblate to slightly heart shaped, have clear skin that retain green flesh when ripe, often showing a pale pink blossom end blush. The flavor is rich, delightful, slightly sweet, with a bit of a tangy aftertaste. Developed by members of the “”Dwarf Tomato Project,”” ”Dwarf Grinch’ was selected and named out of the “”Fancy”” family by Hudson England. Along with key contributor Hudson England and Craig LeHoullier, additional significant contributions were made by Susan Oliverson, Robin Bort, Dan Follett, and Dee Sackett, with final seed selection grown out by Bill Minkey.”
