An incredibly dwarf tomato from Russia that produces a large yield of small globe-shaped fruit very early. The plants are beautiful, stocky and very deep green, growing just a little over a foot tall. This variety looks lovely when loaded with bright red fruit, which it does very quickly. It is one of the first to produce. The fruit are tart and of an average tomato taste.

What are the pros? Stays short; good for pots!

What are the cons? Fruit flavor isn't strong

Review:

I was browsing through my Baker Creek catalogue trying to choose a dwarf variety that I could keep in a pot. I couldn't decide between Geranium Kiss and Minibel, when all of a sudden, Snow Fairy seemed to jump out at me! I was like, "Perfect!". I planted one of my seeds not long after I received them around January. The seed germinated and grew just fine. I kept my plant in an approximately ten inch pot in my greenhouse. I liked how it stayed around only about a foot in height! It did get a little top heavy when it started producing, so I had to make sure the plant was always leaning on something. I got a nice picking of little tomatoes off of it. The flavor of the fruits were not of strong taste; a little 'blah' you might say. However, they didn't taste yucky or anything; I would still eat it over a big store-bought tomato. I will continue to grow these little cuties, and I recommend them over any hybrid patio variety.

Review:

This is a cute, compact tomato plant with lots of medium-small red tomatoes. Just a little over a foot tall, I have 2 plants in a 1' x 2.5' area of the SFG (Square Foot Gardening) table top bed in 6-7" of Mel's Mix (1/3 quality compost). When the summer temps in this hot Zone 9A-B reach 110*F, this little tomato keeps on ticking under a little sun shade on the west side. BER is rare. Highly recommend it for small spaces.

Review:

I grow on a small deck, and therefore need compact plants with high yields. The Snow Fairy does not disappoint. I grew eight plants in four 5-gallon buckets and got a yield of 242 tomatoes. Tomatoes are small (just under tennis ball size) but very tasty and perfectly shaped. The plant is very sturdy, thick-stemmed, and compact (about three feet). Though they require little support, the weight of all those tomatoes can pull a branch down. I recommend a tomato cage. Plants are hardy. I only lost five tomatoes to cracking and four to mold. I can't rightly say about early maturity. My deck gets a little too much shade so my plants probably take longer to mature than if they were in full sun. I seed indoors in late February and plant them outside after Memorial Day. By the beginning of August the tomatoes begin to ripen. I picked my first one on the 3rd of August and my last one by October 11. For comparison, they're like cousins to the Betalux (compact, hardy, high yield, taste).

Review:

Snow Fairy gets about 12-14 inches tall and never needs pruning. Sets quite a lot of tomatoes for it's size. I live in an area with lots of nasty pests and none of them bother these so far, including grasshoppers. You can grow these in the garden, in a pot or indoors. I have grown them in full sun and in full shade. They are also very drought resistant. They matured first of all our varieties of tomatoes. Don't have room to talk about all the good qualities of Snow Fairy. You will not be disappointed with the plant or the fruit. I have recommended this to many people, especially those with very little or no space for garden plants.

Review:

Fantastic tomatoes. I experimented with these last summer(2012). They grow well in ground in full, partial, or full shade. They grow well in pots in full, partial or full shade. They grow well indoors or outdoors. Mine had no pests bother them, not even the grasshoppers that were eating everything else this year. Great flavor! Plants set fruit at lower as well as higher temps than other tomato plants. The heat killed off most of our other tomato plants but did not bother these. The cold killed off the other tomato plants 5 weeks before it got cold enough to kill these. Unbelievably tough little plants! Snow Fairy is small enough to grow indoors all year round. Grow these in your flower beds and people will comment on the pretty and unusual plant with the red orbs. Perfect for people that want tomatoes but are not allowed to grow vegetables in their town. I'll always have these growing around my place!
