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.
WONDERFUL
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!

Ok, but not great for me.
This is a very compact plant that produces medium size tomatoes. The first few I got off the plant tasted terrible and I was ready to write this one off, but the flavor of the next few improved. The flavor is now good, but nothing to really get me too excited. Production has been just OK. I might try to grow this one again, but I have a few other dwarf plants that I want to try before I give this one another shot.
