A old heirloom that was popular in the 1960s. Donated to USDA in 1967 from Australia.
First offered in the Seed Savers 1996 Yearbook by Craig LeHoullier of Raleigh, North Carolina, who rescued it from the USDA. Reintroduced commercially in North America by Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds in 2015. It is not a dwarf (a.k.a. tree-type) tomato, but it is a great candidate for growing in pots due its compact size. This is a very compact and bushy determinate, regular leaf plant that produces an early, heavy crop of 3-6 oz., small to medium-sized, red, oblate tomatoes with delightful, well-balanced flavors.
