Similar to Cherokee Purple' in color, size, shape and flavor but on a dwarf plant with a stout central stem that grows to only about four feet in height. The fruits are a very nice slightly oblate shape ranging from 6-12 oz. and ripen to a deep purple-rose to dark mahogany color. Flavor is full, intense, balanced and delicious. Perfect balance of meatiness and juiciness.

 

HISTORY: A Dwarf Tomato Project variety. It originated from a cross made by Patrina Nuske Small between Budai Torpe and Stump of the World, named Sleepy. Rosella Purple was selected from the Rosella Crimson material and named by Craig LeHoullier to reflect the distinct color.
