Kookaburra Cackle originated from a cross between Wilpena and Cherokee Purple in 2008 made by Patrina Nuske Small named Plentiful F1. Kookaburra Cackle is a mid-season rugose regular leaf dwarf with prolific small 3 – 5oz brown mostly round fruit with rich purplish red interiors. It is named after an iconic Australian bird that is a brown and beige king-fisher type with a call that sounds like a human laughing heartily! Plants reach around a metre+ / 3-4 ft by end of season. This variety was selected and named by Patrina.
