​Kangaroo Paw Brown originated from a cross between Budai Torpe and Cherokee Green made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2005 named Witty F1. Kangaroo Paw Brown is an early-season regular leaf dwarf yielding abundant small red-brown round fruits that are tangy with a sweet note, very tasty. This variety is part of the Kangaroo Paw series (named after an Australian native flower) consisting of a red , a brown, a green and a yellow version. Plants have sturdy stems, robust rugose foliage, and reach about a metre+/ 3-4 ft by end of season. This variety was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier.
