90 days, dwarf — The rugose, regular leaf plants of 'Aussie Drop' reach two to three feet in height and produce small, two to seven ounce, heart shaped, red-brown colored fruit. They have a mild, yet rich and slightly sweet, flavor. A very beautiful and delicious snacking tomato.
The "Lazy" family originated from a cross made by Patrina Nuske Small between an F4 generation selection of "Dwarf Tomato Project" release 'Kangaroo Paw Brown' and the indeterminate variety 'Purple Russian'. 'Aussie Drop' was selected and named by Patrina from this family. Along with key contributor Patrina, others involved in bringing the variety to stability and release are Craig LeHoullier, and Shawn Connant. Bill Minkey and John Dunton both grew out the final selection. Each packet contains at least 20 seeds.
In an effort to keep this variety available to home gardeners, 'Aussie Drop' has been released by "The Dwarf Tomato Project" (the breeder) to the public under the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI). You have the freedom to use these OSSI-Pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, if you save seeds or use 'Aussie Drop' to breed a new variety, you pledge not to restrict others' use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives.
