Kangaroo Paw Yellow Dwarf tomato originated from a cross between Budai Torpe and Cherokee Green made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2005 named Witty F1. Kangaroo Paw Yellow is an early-season regular leaf dwarf and a sibling of Kangaroo Paw Brown, Kangaroo Paw Green and Kangaroo Paw Red. The Kangaroo Paw Yellow Dwarf tomato is a very productive variety, with robust rugose foliage, sturdy stems and heavy yields of very tasty small round bright yellow fruits. This variety was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier. This variety has been pledged to the OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative).
The OSSI is working to maintain fair and open access to plant genetic diversity worldwide and ensuring freedom to use these resources for farmers, gardeners, breeders, and communities of this and future generations. Free the Seed!
