85 days, dwarf — The rugose, potato leaf plants of ‘Dwarf Marong Moon’ produce small, two to three ounce, round to slightly flattened-globe shaped, cherry-type, pale-yellow colored fruit. The bite-sized treats are great for salads and snacking and deliver a pleasant, balanced flavor.
Originating from the Dwarf Tomato Project’s “Snowy” family, ‘Dwarf Marong Moon’ was named by Gregg Muller. Gregg and Susan Oliverson carried out the majority of the subsequent stabilization work, aided by Patrina Nuske Small, Linda Black, Bill Minkey, and Craig LeHoullier. It was introduced by the Victory Seed Company for the 2021 gardening season.
