A 2-5 ounce yellow globe. Plants are short and stiff like like the Husky series of ISI's. At an early stage plants are indistinguishable from Dwarf Champion, Pink. It is much more disease susceptible. In 2005 trial, the pink produced an accecptable crop, but the Golden did not survive long enough to produce a single tomato. Trying as a container plant in 2006. 7-5-06 Did well as a container plant. Has little resistance to soil borne diseases, But makes a cute little container plant. Tomatoes are small but nicely formed.
