About Fred’s Tie Dye

Developed by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Dwarf Wild Fred and Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye made by Vince Lavallo and named Messy. It was selected and named by Vince. Stabilization was the collaborative work of Vince Lavallo, Lyne Rancourt, Ted Maiden, Lisa Moore, Richard Watson, Gina McDermott, Bill Yoder, Simone Pennig, Scott Stough, Donna Marie Kudrak, Marsha Eisenberg, Antoniette Koshykar, and Craig LeHoullier. The starting seed sample was grown out and supplied by Bill Minkey of Darien, Wisconsin in 2014. Introduced commercially by Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds and The Sample Seed Shop in 2015. More information about the development of this cultivar can be found on the Dwarf Tomato Project website.
This is a 2015 Dwarf Tomato Project Release. Indeterminate dwarf (‘tree-type’) plants with rugose regular leaf foliage produce medium-sized, round or oblate, purple tomatoes with jagged gold and green stripes and the deep crimson flesh of black tomatoes. 5-6 oz. Rich, intense, and balanced flavor, more acidic than sweet.
