History * Developed by the members of the [http:// * Developed by the members of the [ Dwarf Tomato Project] from a cross between [[Orange Heirloom]] and [[Rosella Purple]] made by Patrina Nuske Small and named Rosy. It was selected and named by Patrina, after Uluru, a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia. * Stabilization was the collaborative work of Patrina Nuske Small, Patrick Sullivan, Steve McClaren, Linda Black, Marla McClaren, Ted Maiden, Paul Fish, Lurley Hernandez, Dee Sackett, Ginny Bishton, Sue Bailey, Lisa Moore, Sherry Shiesl, Simone Pennig, Amanda Fischer, Sandra Tipton and Craig LeHoullier. * The starting seed sample was grown out and supplied by Bill Minkey of Darien, Wisconsin (WI MI B) in 2014. * Introduced commercially by [[:Category:Tomato Seeds|Tatiana's TOMATObase Seeds]] and [[vendor::The Sample Seed Shop|'' '']] [[The Sample Seed Shop]] '' '' in 2015. * An important request from the breeder of Uluru Ochre, Patrina Nuske Small: ** "''This new dwarf variety is very unique due to its unusual colouring, and I would like to make sure it can be openly shared and made available to anyone wanting to grow or use it for breeding in the future. I would hate to see it used in any patent applications which would prevent other people being able to save or share its seeds, and in today's world this is increasingly a problem, in fact it's a huge problem. I would therefore like Uluru Ochre to be associated with the [ Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI)] and for packets to include the following pledge whenever people sell or share its seeds, also asking the person receiving the seeds to do the same. '' ** [ The OSSI Pledge] - "''' ''You have the freedom to use these OSSI seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others’ use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents, or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives.''" ** ''Thanking you on behalf of seed and food security for the future! Patrina''" * More information about the development of this cultivar can be found on the [ Dwarf Tomato Project] website. Dwarf Tomato Project] website.
