    Handsome, delicious multi-colored beefsteak. Winner of the "Best-tasting tomato" award at the 2016 Seattle TomatoFest. Large tomatoes with wonderful flavor complexity – but not as productive as some other varieties. Definitely worth growing if you want to try this remarkable tomato (Note: this is sometimes listed as Green Berkeley Tie Dye to distinguish it from Red Berkeley Tie Dye – a related tomato)
