Boronia Certified Naturally Grown Seed Certified Naturally Grown Seed

70 days, determinate tree-type — 'Boronia' is a rugose, regular leaf, dwarf variety producing medium to medium large (four to sixteen ounce), oblate fruit that are pink with dark shoulders and have a smooth, meaty texture.  It resembles 'Cherokee Purple' both in its appearance as well as in its delicious, intense flavor quality.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" from a cross between 'New Big Dwarf' and 'Paul Robeson', 'Boronia' is the collaborative work of Patrina Nuske Small (who named it after a native Australian fragrant flower, Boronia megastigma), Gina McDermott, Tanya Kucak, David Lockwood, Craig LeHoullier, Sherry Shiesl, Carol Knapp, Michael Volk and Bill Minkey.  Introduced in 2014.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

In an effort to keep this variety available to home gardeners, 'Boronia' 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 'Boronia' 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.

Delicious ... Produced well without a lot of fuss and continued to produce in the heat.
'Boronia' produced well without a lot of fuss and continues to produce in the heat. They are delicious and the flavor is very similar to the 'Black Krim' tomatoes I raised, without as much trimming of leaves, etc. 'Boronia' grew to a maximum of four feet. Their fruit is generally around the one pound size, with some smaller as the heat seems to have slowed them down. Highly recommend!

In contrast, I grew out a total of seventy tomato plants in homemade compost in raised beds. First time growing dwarf tomatoes. Sprayed weekly with Neem/Sol's once bugs began to show up. Varieties included: Boronia, Bundaberg Rumble, Loxton Lad, Waratah, Gurney Girl's Best, Park's Whopper and Black Krim. Black Krim has succumbed to the heat (100+) and humidity, although it still has some monster tomatoes on it finishing out.
