Deep crimson, meaty and juicy elongated fruits with a loosely heart-shaped appearance are produced in abundance all set on sturdy, compact plants which are perfect for pots or containers. 

If you are of the mindset that a tomato should be red, then Dwarf Red Heart is your perfect tomato! Be sure to have sturdy supports in place though because while diminutive in size, this plant will become a beast.


HISTORY: In 2006, Bill Jeffers discovered an unique plant in a patch of 20 dwarf plants he grew from a pack of mixed dwarf seeds sent from Long Island Seed Project where Kent Ettlinger had grown out several colors of Dwarf Champion types, all round, mixed GWR, yellow, red, and pink.

 

This was one plant produced one ounce, conical bullet shaped, red tomatoes but after growing it out for a couple more seasons, the tomatoes got longer, stayed pointed and red, but the short bush became a bit taller, maybe 2 1/2 feet tall and appearing more like a rugose plant with sauce tomatoes.

 

Jeffers sent some seeds to Dan McMurray who got the most attractive fruit shape, long, pointed, fat cones on a dwarf plant. He named them Dwarf Red Heart.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call - his name is James Johns (310-756-9487) and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
