Uluru Ochre originated from a cross between Orange Heirloom and Rosella Purple made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2009 named Rosy F1. Uluru Ochre is an early to mid-season regular leaf variety with an unusual orange-green ochre tone to the ripe tomatoes. It was selected and named by Patrina after the giant monolithic rock in central Australia. The fruits are medium to large oblate weighing 200-450g/ 8-16oz, very juicy and tender with delicious sweet flavour. Plants have sturdy stems, robust rugose foliage, and reach approximately 1.2 metres/ 4 ft tall requiring support due to the weight of tomatoes.
