About Berkeley Tie-Dye

Berkeley Tie-Dye AKA Berkeley Tie Dye (without the hyphen). This tomato originated in 2000 at Wild Boar Farms from a patch of 500 F2 Beauty King tomatoes. Bradley Gates named this tomato after Berkeley, California, an epicenter of civil liberties movements and Vietnam War protests in the 1960s. Tie-dyed tee-shirts are often associated the “hippies” of Berkeley who championed liberal social reform. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 6-12 oz., beautifully striped with green, yellow, orange, and red colors. Seeds available at http://www.rareseeds.com
