Adelaide Festival Certified Naturally Grown Seed Open Source Seed Initiative

80 days, indeterminate 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. Released in 2014.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

In an effort to keep this variety available to home gardeners, 'Adelaide Festival' has been released by "The Dwarf Tomato Project" (the breeder) to the public under the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI). You have the freedom to use these OSSI-Pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, if you save seeds or use 'Adelaide Festival' to breed a new variety, you pledge not to restrict others' use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives.

I grew in self watering grow bag lined creation pots. In a apartment deck lined apartment after selling my house after 40 years. This was my first totally container garden on an east facing wall with sun only till 2:00. This plant even survived a hit with lawn spray drift. It produced until mid Oct. Wonderful plant , strong, pretty with good fruit. I gave seedlings to several friends and they loved it also.

Fantastic flavor!
This tomato is so flavorful! I have always said that my favorite tomato was Cherokee Purple but I believe this tomato is better. The plant is not as prolific as Cherokee Purple, but it is a space saving plant that can be planted in small areas. I love the flavor!
