About Iditarod Red

Developed in 2006-2011 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Budai Torpe and Black from Tula, made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia and named Grumpy. This tomato was named by Sue Bailey of Alaska after the world-class dogsled race from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. A selection grown by Richard Allen of Australia was sent to Sue Bailey of Alaska, who found and named Iditarod Red. Variety development was handled primarily by Sue, with help from Doug Frank, and the seed grew out for the initial release by Ted Maiden, Tennessee. Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds introduced the variety in 2012. Early Indeterminate, dwarf (tree-type) 4′ tall plants with dark green regular rugose foliage produce 1-4 oz., small, round, red fruits (some showing a nippled blossom end). Well balanced and very pleasant flavor.
