Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomato By Wild Boar Farms

Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomato By Wild Boar Farms

Port Wine Colored Beefsteak, Preferred by 10 out of 10

8-12 oz. fruit boasts an exquisite blend of beauty and a very sweet, rich dark flavor. Garnering unanimous preference over Cherokee Purple in a farmers market taste-off, this variety stands out with its early to mid-early maturation (65-75 days). Compact and indeterminate, it features a regular leaf and showcases a visually stunning port wine-colored beefsteak adorned with metallic green stripes. While thriving in favorable climates, Wild Boar Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye is recommended for those in marginal tomato climates.

Sustainably grown in 2.75" pots 

Growing: 

Soil Preparation: 

Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomatoes thrive in well-drained, fertile soil. Enhance the soil with organic matter, such as compost. Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (5.6-7.0) to create an ideal growing environment. 

Spacing: 

Provide adequate spacing between plants to allow proper air circulation. Aim for a spacing of 18-24 inches between individual plants to promote healthy growth. 

Support and Pruning: 

Due to the potential for vigorous growth, provide support for Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomato plants early in the season. Staking or caging helps prevent sprawling and ensures the plant remains upright. Regular pruning can manage size and encourage optimal fruit production. 

Watering: 

Maintain consistent moisture levels throughout the growing season. Tomatoes prefer deep, regular watering rather than shallow and frequent irrigation. The use of mulch around the plants aids in retaining moisture and suppressing weeds. 

Fertilization: 

Feed your Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomato plants with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer during transplanting and when the first fruits appear. Follow the recommended dosage on the fertilizer package for optimal results. 

Maturation and Harvest: 

Days to Maturity:

Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomatoes typically take around 70-75 days to reach maturity from the time of transplanting. Harvest the tomatoes when they display vibrant pink, red, and green tie-dye colors and show a slight softness when gently squeezed. The flavor is optimal when the tomatoes are fully ripe. 

Storage and Usage: 

Store harvested Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomatoes at room temperature until fully ripe. These tomatoes are versatile in the kitchen, suitable for fresh eating, salads, or enhancing the flavor of various dishes. 

Cultivating Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomatoes from Wild Boar Farms is an exciting venture for any gardening enthusiast. The unique visual appeal and complex flavor of these tomatoes make them a standout choice for both gardeners and chefs. By following the comprehensive guidelines provided, you'll set yourself up for a successful and rewarding harvest of Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye Tomatoes—a true gem among heirloom varieties.
