Great flavor, matures mid-season before other beefsteaks, and has great heirloom flavor.

History: Developed by Brad Gates of Wild Boar Farms in Napa, CA. This port wine-colored beefsteak with metallic green stripes may be the prettiest tomato you’ve ever grown. The flesh is pink with yellow streaks and the flavor is outstanding - sweet, rich, dark heirloom tomato flavor. Be sure to bring this one to the tomato-tasting contest. Beautiful, early, and sweet flavor.

Open-pollinated heirloom (65-75 days)

Plant Habit: Indeterminate  Plant Size: 4-6’. Fruit Color: Bi-Color Red with green stripes. Shape: Flattened Globe. Size: 8-12 oz.  10 seeds

Most of my seeds didn't sprout

I purchased a packet of these seeds in February to germinate indoors along with your Brandywine Tomatoes. All of the Brandwine seeds sprouted but only 5 of the Berkeley's did. So disappointed.

The best tomatoes!

Super easy to grow, no disease issues, resilient, and LOADS of huge, juicy tomatoes. Love the flavor. Kids ate them right of the vine the rest went into BLTs, sauce, and the dehydrator. These will ALWAYS be in my garden from now on

great seedling but too long a wait

we loved growing these from seed. excellent germination, and strong little plants. however, in the garden they were rarely harvested by us before the squirrels got it. I did not like how long we had to wait for these to ripen. If I had a rodent defense, id grow these again. But it was hard to watch them develop and not fully ripen before being taken. We did not have the same problem with smaller varieties of tomatoes.

Sorry you didn't get to enjoy the tomatoes! Those pesky varmints!

Great flavor for an early beefsteak tomato!

I planted these short-season tomatoes because we live in Colorado where crazy late freezes in the spring and early winters are standard, so we have a short growing season. I love beefsteak heirloom tomatoes, but find that they often are not ripe before the first frost/snowstorm comes. So when I read that this tomato was earlier than other beefsteaks, I had to try it. And success, we had a great harvest of RIPE tomatoes for a change in August! I will keep growing these, the tomatoes are beautiful jewels, and are very juicy and tasty.
