Bred by urban farmers for urban farmers, Kangaroo Paw Red is a dwarf tomato variety with mid-sized fruits in a rich shade of red. Grow it in pots or let it grow in your city garden where bigger tomato plants simply won't fit. Even country gardeners will love it - it's easy to grow and delivers a long harvest period. Enjoy it with other Kangaroo Paw colours (green is well worth trying) or on its own. This homegrown variety is an almost sure winner in Australian veggie gardens.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Tomatoes are best sown in trays about 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow seeds about 5mm deep and keep the soil temperature to about 20 celcius until germination. Once the plants have grown their second leaves the seedlings can be transplanted into larger individual pots. Keep the tomato seedlings in a warm sunny position and maintain moisture levels. When planting out, position the plants so that soil covers the entire stem up to the first leaves. This will increase root development and ensure a healthy strong plant. Plants should be placed in full sun and rich soil.

    How to Harvest

    Tomatoes ripened on the vine will be ready once they show their mature colour. The fruits can also be squeezed and should yield slightly when ripe. If frost occurs and temperatures drop late in the season all tomatoes can be picked. Tomatoes that do not ripen on the vine can be ripened indoors by being placed in a warm place out or direct sun.

    I'm very happy with my seeds, they're just popping their little heads up now so hopefully in a month or two they'll be ready to transfer into my garden beds
