Compact but highly branched plants with vines about 3 ft long, potato leaf, 54 days, good production of small (1-2 oz) round red fruit with very nice flavor. One of the best varieties I’ve found for growing in containers, but caging or staking is still recommended to manage the multiple branches the plant generates. Produces fruit from early in the season steadily until first frost.

50-55 days, compact indet., potato leaf plant similar in habit to Matina or Stupice, good for container growing, small 2 oz round red fruit, great taste for such an early variety, sets very well in heat.

What a delight. Lots of 4 oz red round fruit on a potato leaf plant. Indeterminate, it keeps adding blooms and fruit throughout the season. Compact plant that is easy to grow in containers. The best part is the taste. 8.5/10.

History

  • Original, correct name should be Kimberley, and not 'Kimberly'. Unfortunately too many sources, seed savers and commercial vendors, adopted 'Kimberly' name.
  • Developed in the mid-1980's by John de Rocque of Kimberley, BC, Canada, supposedly from a Siberia x Tiny Tim cross, selected for earliness, hardiness, and quality. It has not been confirmed that Siberia and Tiny Tim were the real parents of Kimberly, and genetically it does not make much sense, two regular leaf and dwarf/determinate varieties are unlikely to produce a potato leaf indeterminate.
