Beautiful, dark dusky rose-purple fruits with slight olive shoulders produced on dwarf rugouse regular leaf plants are of superb flavor - both rich and complex.
Fruits are variable in shape with some being perfect hearts and others - not so much. The size of the fruits are quite variable as well with most being in the 3/4lb range, while others can be significantly larger.
Technically, a dwarf plant, Dwarf Purple Heart can reach a height of up to 5 foot. Plants will become very fruit laden so have a solid cage system in place, whether they are grown in the ground or in a container.
HISTORY: Developed by the Dwarf Tomato Project, 'Dwarf Purple Heart' originated with a cross between 'Dwarf Wild Fred' and 'Brad's Black Heart' made by Vince Lavallo.
