60 days, dwarf — The vigorous, but relatively compact, dwarf, rugose, regular leaf plants of 'Bundaberg Rumball', heavily produce medium to medium small sized (two to three ounce), round, chocolate-colored fruit with a delightful, balanced, sweet flavor.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" from a cross between 'Black from Tula' and 'Budai Torpe' made by Patrina Nuske Small. 'Bundaberg Rumball' was selected and named by Richard Allen. Among those who contributed to stabilizing this dwarf variety were Patrina, Howard Kushner, Carol Knapp, Ted Maiden, Christy Shedd, Amanda Fischer, Craig LeHoullier and Bill Minkey. Introduced in 2015. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Unusual color but oh so delicious.
I just counted the different types of tomatoes I planted and the total is twenty-six with a total of 72 plants growing. Obviously I'll be sharing with all my friends and family. These 'Bundaberg Rumball' tomatoes were some of the first to ripen and I definitely didn't plant enough of them. Everyone grabs these as soon as I pick them because they melt in your mouth and have a sweet, rich, mouthwatering flavor. We love them! They're doing well in the ground and in containers.

Funny name but there is nothing funny about this tomato.
I was looking forward to these because of the compact nature of the plant yet fruit that was larger than one once. The color was interesting as well. I grew these initially in my house under lights. I started in an Aerogarden, through the germination until two sets of true leaves, and then moved to a soilless medium with Promix, Tomato Tone and a little bone meal and rock phosphate at the base of the hole. I also added worm castings to the mix. The look and taste of these is unmatched by any of the other 20 varieties planted. Of course, I ordered more seed.

Sweet, rich flavor.
This small dark tomato is very prolific and keeps bearing until frost. Sweet, rich flavor.

What a delight!
I chose this variety mostly because of the name. I have ancestors with the name “Bunda”, and “rumball”? I had to try it. So glad I did! Very sturdy plants, lots of tomatoes, did well in my Earthboxes at 7500’ altitude. But the flavor! So sweet, and then with acid on top—whoever thought up the name “rumball” had it just right! I will be saving and sharing this seed, for sure!
