Dwarf Tomato Project comments:

Coorong Pink originated from a cross between Wilpena and Cherokee Purple by Patrina Nuske Small in 2008 which she named Plentiful. Coorong Pink is a  regular leaf dwarf with heavy yields of small to medium 5 – 8oz smooth mostly round pink fruit. Plants reach around a metre+ / 4 ft by end of season and become very heavy with fruit requiring support. Avoid letting fruits get over-ripe for the best flavour and texture.  The Coorong is a coastal lagoon with abundant bird-life in South Australia. Main growers were Patrina and Craig with help from Ginny Bishton and Joyce Beggs. Seeds for release grown by Bill Minkey.
