4 reviews for Organic Iditarod Red Dwarf Tomato

  1. Flatcat from Dryden, Ontario

    Of the dwarfs I tried, Iditarod meets my taste buds’ memory of a real tomato. Unfortunately this was not a great year for tomatoes of any kind in Northwestern Ontario. (Z.3)

    I only got about 8 tomatoes off my one plant, but I will definitely be growing this one again, and more than 1! (I give my extra seedlings to friends)

  2. Mélanie Chapleau from Sherbrooke, QC Canada

    Very sturdy plant, not too big and a good production in my pots. Good shape and taste. Loved it!

  3. Wanda from Branchport, NY United States

    Even though I specifically selected this variety for it’s short growing season, I’ve determined this is my last season for trying to grow tomatoes. Loved the flavor and did get several tomatoes from our two plants. Again, our growing season is approximately two weeks behind due to our elevation so I picked several while still green. Tried to get them to ripen indoors but was unsuccessful.

  4. Anonymous Person from Lombard, IL

    My first time around with the dwarf tomatoes. Germination was great. Plants looked the healthiest and most compact at the earliest stages (when compared to other non-dwarf varieties grown). In the future I will be offering these plants plenty of support and a little more space. They are very productive which results in toppling over if not supported.

    This variety produces a flavorful medium sized red tomato, and lots of them. Used fresh and in sauces, it contributed well to our harvests.
