80 days, dwarf — A mid-season, rugose, regular leaf dwarf, supplying good yields of perfectly round fruit that range from three to five ounces, are smooth, and purple colored (similar to 'Cherokee Purple'). 'Perth Pride' is juicy, richly full-flavored, tangy and a distinct refreshing tartness. Begin to restrict water as the tomatoes start to ripen as this fine variety is thin skinned and may split.

Developed between 2006 to 2011 by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" as a selection out of the "Happy family" ('New Big Dwarf' and 'Paul Robeson', cross made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small of Australia). During the Australian summer of 2007/08, 'Perth Pride' was selected and named by Tessa Millesse who lives in Perth, Western Australia. It was introduced in 2011. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Attention! This is for tart, zingy flavored tomato lovers!
When this tomato was sampled at the Raleigh Tomatopalooza tasting event some years ago, it elicited lots of "oohs and ahhs" because that intense, full flavor had a remarkable refreshing tang. I often get asked about helping folks find "old fashioned, tangy" flavored varieties. This is it! The medium sized, round purple tomatoes are produced in good quantity. I like to pick them at half ripeness and let them finish on the kitchen counter to work around a tendency to radially crack when fully vine ripened.
