Orange Cream

The vigorous, rugose, potato leaf dwarf plants produce heavy yields of uniquely colored pale orange smooth oblate fruit that have a nearly matte, dull finish, ranging from 8-12 ounces. As with most of the Tipsy family, the flavor is superb - intense, rich, and with a lively tang - clearly one of the best of the dwarf releases to date. On a radio interview on “America’s Home Grown Veggies” show, Craig LeHoullier was asked about favorite dwarf varieties and he indicated this one came in 3rd best of the last 30 released.

Story:

This "Dwarf Tomato Project" variety originated as a cross between 'Golden Dwarf Champion' and 'Elbe' made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2006 and named "Tipsy." 'Dwarf Orange Cream' was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier. Involved in its development were Patrina, Craig, Susan Oliverson, Lisa Moore, Dee Sackett and Bill Minkey. This variety, like the others in the dwarf project are OSSI Pledged seeds.

Here is info about OSSI designated seeds, and here is a very good article on the beginning of OSSI.
