This research were to study tomato growth, yield and vitamin C content in each tomato variety, and dwarf tomato varieties selection for growing in pot plant production. The experimental design was a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) consisted of 10 tomato varieties such as Rosy Finch, Dwarf yellow china, Tiny Tim USA, New Big Dwarf, Red Robin, Yellow Tumbling Tom, Red Tumbling Tom, Tiny Tim china, Small fry, and Micro Tom with 5 replications. The data were collected the dwarf tomato characteristics, total soluble solids and vitamin C content. The variance and data between treatments were analyzed by Duncan’s new multiple-range test (DNMRT). The results showed that 1) Small Fry and Micro Tom varieties of tomato have the widest canopy width as  18.06 and 18.02 centimeters, respectively. For tomato yield found that Micro Tom tomato variety had highest fruit width, fruit length, number of fruits per plant. There were 2.61 centimeters, 2.37 centimeters, 7.33 fruits per plant  8.41 grams, respectively. 2) Tiny Tim USA tomato variety had the highest soluble solids and vitamin C content as 9.73 % Brix and 1,292.33 mg/k, respectively. Red Tumbling Tom tomato variety had the lowest soluble solids and Red Robin tomato variety had the lowest vitamin C content. 3) Micro Tom tomato variety has the potential to be tomato pot plants for home decoration.
