   Wow, August 2, 2019  By David Bowerman (Finksburg, MD)(Verified)
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.
