From the heritage tomato seed website: "Rosella Purple is one of the 9 new dwarf tomato varieties released in 2011 by the Dwarf Tomato Project. Fully ripe fruit from Rosella Purple can rival the flavor of any purple heirloom/OP tomato Iíve tasted. This was one of my top 3 favorite varieties from the new dwarf releases. At 3 feet, this was also the shortest variety of the new dwarf releases. It is easy to grow in containers (I used 5 gallon buckets) but still needs to be staked because it will be top heavy when loaded with fruit. A very nice tomato!"
