CREATE YOUR OWN TOMATO VARIETY

Great opportunity to grow one a kind varieties and possibly develop your own tomato variety starting with rare and extreme potential genetics!


Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye cross with Indigo Apple
In 2011, I did a natural pollen transfer cross of two of my favorite varieties, Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye(Pink BTD) and Indigo Apple.  Pink BTD is a large, early, striped, prolific and super tasty tomato with very flavorful dark pink, purple flesh.  Indigo Apple is a medium sized, red, prolific, sweet tomato with very good anthocyanin expression.  I have had near all black tomatoes in ripe state.  I grew out some of the seeds from this cross and harvested seed from those tomatoes.

In 2013 I grew 100 plants from the F-2 (second generation).  The F-2 generation is when the different expressions (color, shape, size, flavor, etc.) show themselves.  The results were outstanding!  The flavor was good to great on all.  Production averaged very good.  I observed many with large, unusual fruit trusses that had a very high rate of fruit-set.  Find pictures of some of the variations I observed in 2013 here: http://go-2.it/sZa
