“Kangaroo Paw Brown” originated with a cross between Budai Torpe and Cherokee Green made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2005 and named Witty. Kangaroo Paw Brown was selected and named collaboratively by Patrina, Tim Warren and Craig LeHoullier (Patrina with the Kangaroo Paw, and Tim and Craig as different colors arose). The vigorous regular leaf dwarf plants produce loads of smooth round brown (yellow skinned black) fruit that are in the 4 ounce range. The flavor is delightful – well balanced, and very tasty. Involved – Patrina Nuske Small, Tim Warren, Craig LeHoullier, Jay Scott, Kevin Taylor, Bob Fromm, Dee Sackett, Howard Kushner, Carol Knapp, and Doug Frank. The starting seed sample was grown and provided by Bill Minkey.
