“90 days, dwarf — The rugose, regular leaf plants of ‘Aussie Drop’ reach two to three feet in height and produce small, two to seven ounce, heart shaped, red-brown colored fruit. They have a mild, yet rich and slightly sweet, flavor. A very beautiful and delicious snacking tomato. The “”Lazy”” family originated from a cross made by Patrina Nuske Small between an F4 generation selection of “”Dwarf Tomato Project”” release ‘Kangaroo Paw Brown’ and the indeterminate variety ‘Purple Russian’. ‘Aussie Drop’ was selected and named by Patrina from this family. Along with key contributor Patrina, others involved in bringing the variety to stability and release are Craig LeHoullier, and Shawn Connant. Bill Minkey and John Dunton both grew out the final selection.”
