100 days, dwarf — 'Barossa Fest' is a rugose, potato leaf variety that produces small-medium (two to six ounce), pale yellow fruit with a bit of blossom-end blush. The fruits are smooth, globe shaped, juicy with a nice sweet flavor and tart aftertaste. This is a tall-growing dwarf with plants averaging four to six feet in height at maturity.
Introduced in 2016. Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" this variety originated from a cross between 'Golden Dwarf Champion' and 'Green Giant.' 'Barossa Fest' was first bred by Patrina Nuske Small in 2005 and named 'Sneezy'. The Barossa Valley is one of South Australia's premier wine-growing regions where vintage festivals are celebrated each harvest season. Those who were also involved in this variety's development were Lou Larrieu, Carl Matthei, Craig LeHoullier, and Bill Minkey. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
In an effort to keep this variety available to home gardeners, 'Barossa Fest' 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 'Barossa Fest' 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.
