Tasmanian Chocolate

About Tasmanian Chocolate

Developed in the 2006-2011 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between New Big Dwarf (An historic large fruited pink dwarf) and Paul Robeson, made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. Thi new introduction was one of the most compact (3’9″ tall) and heaviest producers of the new dwarf releases. The variety was selected and named by Linda Reid of Tasmania. Others involved in its development are Craig LeHoullier (North Carolina), Lee Newman, Greg Fee, Michael Volk (Texas), Tim McElroy, Howard Kushner, Paul Fish and Bill Minkey (Wisconsin). Victory Seed Company introduced the variety in 2011. This is a good selection for a container, small garden, or for growing in a climate where fruit set is a challenge. Indeterminate, regular leaf (tree-type) plants with regular rugose produce 5-14 oz., cholate-colored fruit. Fruits are shaped like flattened beefsteaks and have very good balanced flavor.
