Organic Fred’s Tie-Dye Dwarf Tomato

65 days to harvest from transplant Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Description

We share Craig LeHouillier’s passion for tomatoes & are in awe of the many dwarf varieties he has developed in collaboration. Organic Fred’s Tie-Dye Dwarf Tomato is essentially Berkeley Pink Tie-Dye on a dwarf 3′ plant, its abundant, striped slicers averaging 8 ounces. You’ll enjoy plenty of fruit when you grow these in containers, all the more if you trellis them ever so slightly.

    Prettiest tomato I have ever grown! Tasted great too!

    We had great luck with these last year in zone 5 (Chicago). Grew them in a raised bed, in a cage. Did not prune until September, when I topped them to get them to ripen the fruit they had left instead of growing more. We got two rounds of fruit before frost. The fruit was delicious, pretty, and finished ripening well on the counter (so the critters didn’t get it first). We’re definitely repeating this year.

    I grew these for the first time last year in WI zone 5a. These plants were sturdy and more tolerant of disease than some other varieties I grew. I did minimal pruning and still found that only a bit of strategic support was needed for branches heavy with fruit. Production was about the same or better than most full-sized indeterminate types grown in the same conditions. The flavor was comparable to my Cherokee Purples, similar in size and texture etc. also. I made a BLT for a visiting friend who said it was the best BLT she’d ever eaten. I ended up putting in more of this variety than I planned, as I grew extras for friends who never took them, and I was so glad I did. Will grow more again this year.
