Coorong Pink originated from a cross between Wilpena and Cherokee Purple in 2008 made by Patrina Nuske Small named Plentiful F1. Coorong Pink is an early-season regular leaf dwarf with heavy yields of small to medium 5 – 8oz smooth mostly round pink fruit. Plants reach around a metre+ / 4 ft by end of season and become very heavy with fruit requiring strong support. Avoid letting fruits get over-ripe for the best flavour and texture. This variety was selected and named by Patrina. The Coorong is a coastal lagoon with abundant bird-life in South Australia.
