Berkeley Tie Dye Tomato

If you're looking for a sweet, rich flavorful tomato, you've found it in the Berkeley Tie-Dye Pink Tomato! This beefsteak variety is an indeterminate, open-pollinated with compact plants, and it's well adapted to all climates. It has a vibrant, tie-dye like appearance with deep red skin and metallic green stripes. A feast for the eyes and the taste buds! It has been said that the Berkeley Tie-Dye Pink beats the Cherokee Purple in taste tests, but we will let you be the judge of that! Solanum lycopersicum. 65-70 days to maturity.

Be sure to check out our Tomato Growing Guide for tips & tricks on being successful in growing tomatoes at home.

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be "stepped-up" to 4" pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
