Tomato, Dwarf Confetti (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow with Pink Stripes. 70 days. Dwarf Indet.
This tomato really knows how to party, and not just because of the name. Dwarf Confetti’s striped skin is a festive addition to any garden or food dish, and the sweet flavor has a pizzaz that many older dwarf tomato varieties lack. Slightly flattened 6-8 oz globe fruit have yellow/pink bicolored flesh. High yielding plants benefit from a short cage or staking so they don’t fall over. With over 100 tomatoes already in our catalog, it’s rare that one gets instant approval from the whole Adaptive Seeds team, and Dwarf Confetti did just that. Released in 2018 by the Dwarf Tomato Project as an Open Source Seed Initiative pledged variety.
Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.
Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.
