80 days, dwarf
— 'Adelaide Festival' is a vigorous, rugose
, regular leaf variety that produces fruits that are a rich purple color (clear skinned black) with green stripes that ripen to olive-gold. They are medium-sized (six to ten ounce), smooth, oblate in shape, very juicy and tender with a delicious, well-balanced flavor that is neither too tart or too sweet.
Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project
" from a cross between 'Rosella Purple
' and 'Pink Berkeley Tie Dye'. It was selected and named by Patrina Nuske Small of Australia in appreciation of the Adelaide Festival of Arts fireworks. Those who contributed to the development of 'Adelaide Festival' were Patrina, Amanda Fischer, Craig LeHoullier
, Ted Maiden, Sue Bailey, Jessica Dubin, Bill Yoder, Doug Frank, and Lisa Moore. Introduced in 2014. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
