Rosella Purple

A Dwarf Tomato Project variety perfect for growing in containers. In Craig’s own words – “58 days, dwarf, regular leaf rugose foliage, medium to large purple fruit, productive, just delicious with a full flavor similar to Cherokee Purple in color, size, shape and flavor but on a dwarf growing plant. 

Regular leaf, dark green rugose foliage, stout central stem, grows to three to four feet in height. Perfect for a large container or a small garden space. The fruits are oblate, ranging from six to twelve ounces, and ripen to a deep purple-pink color. Flavor is full, intense, balanced and delicious.”


From Tatiana’s TOMATObase:

Developed in the 2006-2011 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Budaï Torpe (a small red fruited dwarf) and Stump of the World, made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. A subsequent selection discovered by Craig LeHoullier led to 'Rosella Purple'.
