Dwarf Champion, along with German Dwarf, has compact plants which could be grown in 12”-15” pots. The plants are very vigorous with sturdy upright stems and dark green leaves. Plants are 1’-2’ tall and remain upright without staking until they are heavy with fruit when they lean somewhat. The leaf cover is so dense that most of the fruits are not visible, even when they are ripe. Dwarf Champion has pinkish red fruits. There is mention of “stakeless” or “tree” tomato varieties in the mid- to late 1800’s in both France and the USA.
