70 days, dwarf — The vigorous, rugose, regular leaf plants of 'Sturt Desert Pea' produce excellent yields of smooth, oblate, four to eight ounce, red fruit that have a pleasant, well-balanced flavor.

This "Dwarf Tomato Project" variety was selected and named by Patrina Nuske Small from the project’s "Plentiful family." Involved in its stabilization were Patrina, Craig LeHoullier, Stuart Pollack, Susan Dzejachok, Rich Hawksworth, Lisa Moore and Bill Minkey.

When asked about the name, Patrina told us that it was chosen in honor of Charles Sturt. He was, ". . . a 19th century British explorer who led expeditions into the inhospitable desert interiors of Australia looking for rivers or an inland 'sea'. An intensely red shiny legume flower was named 'Sturt Desert Pea' in recognition of his work." Introduced for the 2016 gardening season. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
This should be a foundational variety in your garden
Sure, we have flashy dwarf varieties with amazing colors, unusual shapes and surprisingly large sizes. Sturt Desert Pea can easily get lost in the sauce (pun intended). It is medium sized, it is scarlet red. But take a taste and the excellence of the flavor will win you over - as well as the high productivity and ability to do well in many gardening areas. Not all great tomatoes have to stand out in the crowd!
