“Waratah” field notes for 2016: Strong growing plant. Fruit: very juicy, 3-8 oz., red, oblate to flattened beefsteak. Larger plant and larger fruit than Tanunda Red. Very good production. (7/15/2016) One of the best tasting dwarfs this season.

“Waratah” originated with a cross between an early generation Sleepy selection called Wilpena and Cherokee Purple made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2008 and named Plentiful. Waratah was selected and named by Patrina. The vigorous, high yielding regular leaf dwarf plants produce smooth oblate red fruit that range between 6-12 ounces, and have a rich, well balanced, delicious flavor. Involved are Patrina Nuske Small, Craig LeHoullier, Paige Prince, Susan Dzejachok, and Joyce Beggs. The starting seed sample was grown and provided by Bill Minkey.
