Maralinga

A very nice red tomato from the Dwarf Tomato Project. Fruit are a rich brown with flesh that is deep crimson. They average about 6-12 oz and have that wonderful flavor common to dark tomatoes – very rich and intense. Plants have the typical vigorous rugose leaves of dwarf plants and have heavy yields.
