Kangaroo Paw Brown
90 days, determinate dwarf
— 'Kangaroo Paw Brown' is a later season variety with plants that are vigorous, prolific, uniform, compact dwarf in habit with rugose
, regular leaf foliage. The fruits are round to flattened-globe in shape, two to six ounces in weight, and have deep crimson flesh and dark, chocolate colored shoulders when ripe. Very tasty.
Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project
" as a selection out of the "Witty family
" ('Budai Torpe' and 'Cherokee Green
', cross made by Patrina Nuske Small of Australia). 'Kangaroo Paw Brown' was selected and named collaboratively by Patrina, Tim Warren and Craig LeHoullier
(Patrina chose "Kangaroo Paw," with Tim and Craig adding the color designation). Team members involved included Patrina, Tim, Craig, Jay Scott, Kevin Taylor, Bob Fromm, Dee Sackett, Howard Kushner, Carol Knapp, Doug Frank, and Bill Minkey.
