This gorgeous port wine colored beefsteak with metallic green stripes was preferred by 10 out of 10 people over Cherokee Purple in a farmers market taste off. Beautiful, early, and very sweet and rich, the Pink Berkeley Tie Dye Tomato Plant has beautiful and compact 8-12 oz. average fruit. Indeterminate; 65-75 days.
Growing Tomatoes requires a few basic things for success:
·Planting after your last frost date in Spring
·Good Soil, with enough room for each plant to
grow, weed free
·6+ hours of sunlight
·At least 1” of rain per week or supplemental
watering to achieve the same amount.
·Organic Vegetable Fertilizer blended for
Tomatoes, with calcium included, used as directed.
·Strong Supports for the plants to grow on.
·Proper pH level from 5.5-6.2
·Daytime temperatures from 70-85, Nighttime
temperatures 55-71 degrees for flowers to form fruit
This is my second year for growing Pink Berkeleys and I can not be more impressed. It's the first tomato to ripen and tastes better than my Cherokee purples which have always been my favorites. Very deep red flesh that melts in your mouth, but is just firm enough not to be mushy. Only catch is you have to watch them closely as the skin is not brightly colored; they're easy to miss.
