Iditarod Red originated from a cross between Budai Torpe and Black from Tula made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2005 named Grumpy (an F1 hybrid). Iditarod Red is an early season regular leaf dwarf with heavy yields of medium small round to slightly oval red fruit in the 2 ounce range, some with a slight bottom point or nipple, possessing a mild, sweet, pleasant flavor. Plants reach about a metre+/ 3-4 ft by end of season. This variety was selected and named by project volunteer Susan Bailey.
