Kookaburra Cackle Certified Naturally Grown Seed Open Source Seed Initiative

70 days, dwarf — The vigorous, high yielding, rugose, regular leaf dwarf plants of 'Kookaburra Cackle' produce lots of smooth, oblate shaped, beautiful, brown colored fruit that have a pleasant flavor that is on the tart side.

This "Dwarf Tomato Project" variety originated with a cross between an early generation "Sleepy family" selection called 'Wilpena' and 'Cherokee Purple' made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2008 and named "Plentiful." 'Kookaburra Cackle' was selected and named by Patrina. When asked the significance behind the name, Patrina said, "Kookaburra [is] an iconic Australian bird similar to a kingfisher but brown and beige, and the song / call sounds like a human laughing, hence the 'cackle'."

Other project members to helped stabilized this variety were Patrina, Rich Hawksworth, and Craig LeHoullier. The starting seed sample was grown and provided by Bill Minkey. Introduced for the 2016 gardening season. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
