Banskia Queen Dwarf tomato is a pretty yellow fruit that bears on vines that are about 3 feet tall. Even though it’s a dwarf variety, it definitely has to be staked because its tomatoes are large and its production is good. Plants have rugose leaves and none of ours have ever showed signs of diseases. Our biggest fruits have been around 10 ounces and smallest around 4. When it comes to taste, it is milder, a bit tangy, with sweet undertones. It is a great salsa, sandwich, and cooking tomato, and if you have any left over, take them to the market–they’ll do well.
One quick note, for the last three years, we have sold literally thousands of dwarf tomato plants at our farmers market.
I really enjoy these tomatoes. The only thing that threw me back is the packaging. I’m ok paying $3+ for 10 tomato seeds, but there was absolutely no info about the variety of tomato. Just seeds in a plastic bag with a sticky note on it that tells you the name. No picture or description. So everytime you try to figure out which time you are planting you have to Google everything. Maybe you guys could work on better packaging? Adding growing info and a small pic on front? I believe this would help tremendously. I took 1 star off for packaging bc it is a pain to have to constantly google to figure out growing conditions/etc.

Thank you so much for your honest review and comment. I have often thought about my packaging and what I came up with came up with was conservative and cost cutting. I realize that it can or may create an issue for some people, but truly, in 7 years you are the first person to ever say something about it. My thought always was if someone wants to know more about the tomato they can just go back to the website. I also like the personal touch with each individual package being hand written. Hope you have a great growing season, Ashlee.

Short tight plant but loaded with yellow sweet maters . I really enjoyed them more at the ripest point . Easy to grow .
