Green Berkeley Tie Dye Tomato (Organic, 75 days)

Last season the taste explosion of the Pink Berkeley Tie Dye impressed us, so this year we just had to try the green side of the Tie Dye’s. An entanglement of flavors, a hint of sweetness at the beginning of a bite, moving through to a lightly tart, savory side with a salty edge. The exterior is a burnt orange shade with metallic green stripes that encompasses the round to oblate, 8-16 oz fruit. The tricolored interior is succulent and meaty with green, red, and a little creamy yellow swirling shades.

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.
