Dwarf Crimson Sockeye is a rugose, regular leaf variety that produces large yields of medium (four to ten ounce) tomatoes. The fruits are smooth-skinned with slightly-ribbed shoulders, oblate in shape, with a well-balanced flavor.

As their name implies, the underlying color is that of a pink fruit but like pink fruits in the black-fruited category, they retain varying degrees of chlorophyll giving them a richer, darker pink exterior color made obvious when slicing them open.

Developed by members of the Dwarf Tomato Project, this variety originated from a cross between Rosella Purple and Pink Berkeley Tie Dye. Dwarf Crimson Sockeye was first bred by Patrina Nuske Small in 2009 and named Tidy. It was then developed, selected, and named by Ted Maiden with Sue Bailey. It was introduced for the 2016 gardening season.
