Rose De Berne

French Heirloom or Swiss heirloom. Some sources indicate that it is from Switzerland, probably because Bern (or Berne, to use the French spelling) is the capital city of Switzerland. There is an apple variety from Switzerland called “Rose de Berne”, and this variety is known in France. Some speculate that this is where the tomato name came from, as it resembles the apple in shape and color. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces beautiful 8-14 oz., round, oblate juicy tomatoes that are a rose-pink color and have an excellent sweet flavor. A hit with many growers.
