80 days, dwarf — The plants of 'Iditarod Red' are compact with a stout central stem and have rugose, regular leaf, dark green rugose. The fruit are smooth and round, sometimes slightly flattened-globe shaped, ranging from two to four ounces, and ripen to red with a flavor that is well balanced and pleasant.
Developed between 2006 to 2011 by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" as a selection out of the "Grumpy family" ('Budai Torpe' and 'Black from Tula', cross made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small of Australia). A selection grown by Richard Allen of Australia was sent to Sue Bailey of Alaska, who found and named 'Iditarod Red' after the world class dogsled race from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. Introduced in 2011. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
In an effort to keep this variety available to home gardeners, 'Iditarod Red' has been released by "The Dwarf Tomato Project" (the breeder) to the public under the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI).
