Boronia Certified Naturally Grown Seed

70 days, dwarf — 'Boronia' is a rugose, regular leaf, dwarf variety that typically reaches three to four feet in height in a typical growing season. It produces medium to medium large (four to sixteen ounce), oblate shaped fruit that are pink in color with dark shoulders and have a smooth, meaty texture. It resembles 'Cherokee Purple' fruit both in its appearance as well as in its delicious, intense flavor quality.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" from a cross between 'New Big Dwarf' and 'Paul Robeson', 'Boronia' is the collaborative work of Patrina Nuske Small (who named it after a native Australian fragrant flower, Boronia megastigma), Gina McDermott, Tanya Kucak, David Lockwood, Craig LeHoullier, Sherry Shiesl, Carol Knapp, Michael Volk and Bill Minkey. Introduced in 2014. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
