Kookaburra Cackle Certified Naturally Grown Seed Open Source Seed Initiative

70 days, tree-type — The vigorous, high yielding, rugose, regular leaf dwarf plants produce lots of smooth, oblate, beautiful, brown fruit that have a pleasant flavor that is on the tart side.

This "Dwarf Tomato Project" variety originated with a cross between an early generation "Sleepy family" selection called 'Wilpena' and 'Cherokee Purple' made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2008 and named "Plentiful." 'Kookaburra Cackle' was selected and named by Patrina. When asked the significance behind the name, Patrina said, "Kookaburra [is] an iconic Australian bird similar to a kingfisher but brown and beige, and the song / call sounds like a human laughing, hence the 'cackle'."

Other project members to helped stabilized this variety were Patrina, Rich Hawksworth, and Craig LeHoullier. The starting seed sample was grown and provided by Bill Minkey. Introduced for the 2016 gardening season. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

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