95 days, dwarf — 'Coorong Pink' is a rugose, regular leaf variety that produces large yields of small to medium (four to eight ounce), pink fruits. The fruits are smooth-skinned, flattened-globe in shape, juicy and meaty with a nice mild flavor. The plants average about four to six feet in height and benefit from support.
Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" this variety originated from a cross between 'Wilpena' and 'Cherokee Purple.' 'Coorong Pink' was first bred by Patrina Nuske Small in 2008 and named 'Plentiful.' The Coorong is a coastal lagoon with abundant bird-life in South Australia. Those also involved in this variety's development were Craig LeHoullier, Ginny Bishton, Joyce Beggs, and Bill Minkey. Introduced in 2016. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
In an effort to keep this variety available to home gardeners, 'Coorong Pink' 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 'Coorong Pink' 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.
