65 days, dwarf — The vigorous, dwarf, rugose, regular leaf plants are relatively compact, quite early to produce and prolific. Producing a good yield of medium to large sized (six to twelve ounces) oblate uniquely colored tomatoes that are essentially the first "black/orange" variety we've seen - orange flesh with green overtones, and somewhat amber/orange/green in appearance. The flavor can be a bit variable season to season, but at its best, it has an absolutely delicious, smokey flavor.

'Uluru Ochre' originated as a cross between 'Orange Heirloom' and 'Rosella Purple' made by Patrina Nuske Small and named "Rosy."  'Uluru Ochre' was selected and named by Patrina.  Among those who contributed to stabilizing this "Dwarf Tomato Project" variety are Patrina, Patrick Sullivan, Steve McClaren, Linda Black, Marla McClaren, Ted Maiden, Paul Fish, Lurley Hernandez, Dee Sackett, Ginny Bishton, Sue Bailey, Lisa Moore, Sherry Shiesl, Simone Pennig, Amanda Fischer, Sandra Tipton, Bill Minkey, and Craig LeHoullier.  Introduced in 2015.
Absolutely delicious!
I have twelve different varieties of tomatoes growing and besides the Golden Heart, these are my one of our favorites. I wouldn't say Smokey taste but definitely a full, rich, delicious, melt in your mouth kind of taste. I'm definitely growing these again!

My favorite new tomato.
Productive plants produce large tomatoes that not only have a unique color inside and out, but taste good too. They have the sweet flavor of an orange tomato along with the richness of a black tomato, with a little fruity tanginess of a green tomato. My favorite new tomato the first year that I planted it.

Oh, what a fun variety this is - we found a new color! A "black/orange"!
I remember my Australian project co-lead, Patrina, emailing me to tell me about this new color she found as one of our new dwarf project candidates. The chlorophyll-retention upon ripening character of one of the parents, Cherokee Purple, combined with the orange pigment to give the most unique combination of orange and green. The best parts, however, are the size, productivity, and wonderful balanced, robust flavor. The size can approach one pound - and the flavor among the very best. This is yet another significant achievement for our breeding project!

I'm so glad I picked this variety to try this year. The tomatoes are so delicious. It's an amazingly complex flavor that pairs smokey and fruity with the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity. The plants were very tidy and only about 2.5 feet tall. They only required a stake. I will always make room in my garden for these from now on.

A new favorite!
My only regret this year is not growing more than one plant and not starting these earlier. My one plant yielded quite large, delicious tomatoes. The flavor and texture are superb and unseated my prior favorite tomato. Perfect on its own or in a tomato sandwich. I have been having lots of tomato toast for breakfast - toasted bread, slice of Uluru ochre tomato, fresh mozzarella, basil, drizzle I’d balsamic vinegar and some salt & pepper!
