What are the pros? Taste, Appearance, Early

What are the cons? Short Shelf Life

Review:

The Berkeley is a wonderful tomato to grow. It is healthy, an early producer, and delicious. Keep an eye out when growing this variety; as soon as it starts to blush it will ripen very quickly. Also, once picked, it has a short shelf life. Don't let it sit for more than a day or two before eating or it will be a mushy mess. I woud love to share a photo, but I do not see that as an option. Feel free to check it out on my Instagram page @theholmesstead and find the photo taken on 6/2/2016. The darker tomato is the Berkeley.

What are the pros? Best Tasting Work of Art!

What are the cons? Never enough

Review:

I've been growing these for many years now. They seem to be a little finicky & attract some pests, but I still grow them because they taste SO good. Pink Berkeley Tie Dyes are some of the most beautiful tomatoes each a little work of art that often began pink & green striped turning to deep red & green (Christmas colors),deep red/purple inside when fully ripe. Some of the juiciest tomatoes that would make a fine juice for drinking. Salsa is excellent both fresh & canned. Canned tends to be a little runnier but so delicious it doesn't matter!Also a winner in tomato sauce/paste. I could live on Pink Berkeley Tie Dye Tomatoes, they're perfect for slicing, tomato sammys or BLT's.They attract some critters & a powdery mildew but I've found that even stressed plants produced delicious tomatoes, just not as many. I'll continue to grow these, rotating their location each year. Good support is essential! I'd give 'em 5 stars if they were easier to grow & produced more. :*)

Review:

I have been growing these for a couple of years now with great success. Last summer I had an infant and my garden didn't do very well. Except these lovely tomatoes. I still got my fix despite pretty much total neglect. Production obviously isn't as great in those circumstances, but other varieties failed completely (my fault not theirs). This was still a regular producer, and one of the most delicious tomatoes. I have a couple of tomato hating kids (what? they must not be mine!), but even they love these. I tell everyone to get them for their gardens, maybe I shouldn't let my secret out.

Review:

This was my favorite tomato last year, and I'll grow it again. Rich purple tomato taste- I can see how it beat's Cherokee! The first and last producing tomato out of 10 varieties. Drought-resistant in my un-irrigated garden, and no fungal or disease problems in the humid TN summer. And did I mention, the merit on beauty alone? If grown for market, no one can resist.
