“75 days, dwarf — The rugose, regular leaf plants of ‘Dwarf Metallica’ grow two to three feet in height. It fruit range from four to sixteen ounces each, are pink in color with green stripes, oblate to slightly heart shaped, and deliver a flavor that is well-balanced; slightly sweet and tangy. The “”Beauty”” family originated from a cross made by Vincent Lavallo between the “”Dwarf Tomato Project”” release ‘Dwarf Wild Fred’ and the indeterminate variety ‘Beauty King’. ‘Dwarf Metallica’ was selected from this family and named by Suzanne Dzejachok. Others who contributed to this variety were Craig LeHoullier, Susan Oliverson, Nancy Ruhl, Ray Newstead, Justin Sieglaff, Barbara Kambourelis, and Anne Haywood, with Bill Minkey and John Dunton growing out the release.”
