‘Boronia’ tomato was developed by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross made between ‘New Big Dwarf’ and ‘Paul Robeson’. Selection and stabilization work on this variety was collaborative of Patrina Nuske Small, Gina McDermott, Tanya Kucak, David Lockwood, Craig LeHoullier, Sherry Shiesl, Carol Knapp, Michael Volk, and Bill Minkey. Named by Patrina Nuske Small after a native Australian fragrant flower, ‘Boronia megastigma’. First offered to the public in 2014 by ‘Heritage Seed Market’, ‘Tatianas TOMATObase’ and ‘Knapp’s Fresh Vegies’.
Indeterminate, rugose, and regular leaf, dwarf-type plants grow up to about 1.6m tall. Good yield of medium to large (7-12oz./200-350g), purple and oblate beefsteaks with dark, smooth shoulders. Meaty and dense flesh with a buttery texture and delicious, intense flavor. Midseason, about 70 days from transplant.
