What are the pros? Garden workhorse tomato

What are the cons? A bit quick to soften up

Review:

I grew this for the first time this year. However this tomato was one of the first to fruit and is still going strong mid-late season. It is loaded with fruit, has lush foliage, seems very disease and pest resistant (has done well despite other problems with other varieties) and has really been the most reliable tomato in m garden this year. We had a bad year for tomatoes in our region with heavy rains and a lot hotter and more humid than normal for our mountain climate (6A)..many tomatoes succumbed to blight, blossom end rot, wilt and worms..but these have continued to produce steadily all season. They are also very tasty. I'm not sure I'd rate them over Cherokee Purple but they are very good..certainly about a month earlier than that other variety. I've canned quite a few and they do seem a bit thinner skinned...take less time to scald and don't seem to keep as well as other varieties. I will definitely grow them again next year.

Review:

Bought the seeds because I was enticed by tomato description and look. They matured late July and vines were loaded with tomatoes. They were slightly irregular looking but tie-dyed colored as advertised. Their flavor is exactly what I was looking for, sweet, tart and delicious.My garden size is somewhat limited but next year I will give these wonderful tomatoes more space.

Review:

This was a surprise in a free packet of tomato seeds from Baker...I love those rogue seeds, it's like a mystery present . This green striped tomato was hands down one of my favorites, it even made it through the winter temps and survived light frosts. It came back in the spring thriving and full of blooms. I cannot say enough about the sweet flavor, it was a favorite of mine and shared throughout the neighborhood, everyone was wanting them. I also found them to be drought tolerant, after the plant was established and about a foot tall, it did well on it's own with very little water or moisture other than what nature provided and we were in a period of severe drought there. Best tasting tomato I've grown to date and very little maintainence...it does tend to sprawl

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. :*)
