80 days, dwarf — The rugose, potato leaf plants of ‘Dwarf Stony Brook Speckled’’ are quite compact, reaching  thirty-six to forty-eight inches tall, and are very productive. The elongated, Roma-type tomatoes are a beautiful scarlet color with distinct jagged golden stripes and are between 3-6 ounces in weight. They have the classic consistency of a paste tomato, making them perfect for sauce, paste, and preserving. Their flavor is mild and pleasant, and the fruit keep for a long time after picking without losing quality. This release is essentially a potato leaf, dwarf-growing “version” of the well-loved parent variety Speckled Roman. 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 Speckled’’ 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.
