About Maralinga

‘Maralinga’ was developed by the members of the ‘Dwarf Tomato Project’ from a cross made by Patrina Nuske Small between an early generation selection from the ‘Sleepy’ family called ‘Wilpena’ and ‘Cherokee Purple’ in 2008 and named ‘Plentiful’ family. The name ‘Maralinga’ is in memoriam of the South Australia indigenous people.* Stabilization was the collaborative work of Craig LeHoullier, Patrick Sullivan, Lisa Moore, Rich Hawksworth, Shawn Conant, Scott Jacobs, Bill Yoder, Doug Frank, and Bill Minkey. Released in 2015 (F8 generation).
Dwarf vines with rugose, regular leaves yield medium to large (6-12oz./180-350g), brown, oblate fruits with meaty flesh, and a deep, smokey flavor. Midseason, about 75 days after transplant.

*Maralingain, located in the isolated western regions of South Australia, was the location of British nuclear testing in the mid-1950s, inflicting anguish among the evicted indigenous people and catastrophic radiation contamination.
