Default Tomato Name Translation

One of the tomato packets I received from Farmer Shawn is one called 'Dreikäsehoch'. It's one suitable for growing in a hanging basket. Dusting off my German I think that translates literally "three cheese high" or "three cheese tall". Is anyone familiar with this one and can help with the translation?

I started one today along with a Feher Ozon pepper that will eventually live on a pot on the porch. Just had to get my hands into some potting soil this morning.

Quick google search confirms "three cheese high" as the literal translation, but it's also used to refer to small children.

I wonder if that means the plant is compact?
