80 days, dwarf — The rugose, potato leaf plants of ‘Dwarf Stony Brook Heart’’ are quite compact, reaching  thirty-six to forty-eight inches tall, and are very productive. The distinctly heart-shaped tomatoes are a beautiful scarlet color with distinct jagged golden stripes. Most fruit run between six and ten ounces, but they can reach one pound or more. The meaty flesh is classic tomato with an initial burst of sweetness, making them very versatile, perfect for sauce, paste, preserving and slicing. The “Worry” family originated from a cross made by Craig LeHoullier between “Dwarf Tomato Project” release ‘Wherokowhai’ and the indeterminate variety ‘Speckled Roman‘. ‘Dwarf Stony Brook Heart’’ was selected and named by Gina McDermott in 2017. Along with key contributor Gina McDermott, Craig LeHoullier, Denise Salmon, Susan Oliverson, Bill Minkey, Mike Dunton, and John Dunton are the other contributors to creating this new variety.
