Wherokowhai Certified Naturally Grown Seed

90 days, dwarf — A mid to late season, rugose, potato leaf dwarf which was the first bi-colored variety offered by the "Dwarf Tomato Project."  The medium to medium large (four to fourteen ounce), oblate fruit are yellow with red swirls with an outstanding, sweet flavor, and can be considered a dwarf version of one of its parents, 'Lucky Cross'. 'Wherokowhai' means "red/yellow" in the native New Zealand Maori language and is pronounced "fer-dow-co-fi." It was named by New Zealand project member Richard Watson.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" as a selection out of the "Dizzy family" ('Dwarf Russian Swirl' and 'Lucky Cross'). Wherokowhai is the collaborative work of Ray South, Richard Watson (who named it), Craig LeHoullier, Martha Hufford, Soren Linnemann, Lyn Rancourt, Patrina Nuske Small, Michael Volk, Bill Yoder, Doug Frank, Bill Minkey and Willa Osis. Introduced in 2014. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Splits in Earthtainer
A handsome, very good-tasting tomato, but in an Earthtainer, it split badly for me. Four foot plus plant for me. Perhaps in a drier environment and/or maybe picked part-ripe, it might show less splitting.

VSC NOTES: Thank you for the information, Larry. It sounds like the kind of thing that happens to tomato fruits that receive a big dose of water, whether from a rain storm or hose, at just the wrong time in the fruit development stage.

Grown in the ground, does pretty well and exhibits very little splitting. Thank you again for sharing your info! ~Mike
