    I grew two Pink Tie Dye plants this year, one in the ground in an area that doesn't get a full day of sun and one in a large (~6gal) container. The first plant had a small yield of fruits with a handsomely striped skin and an intense taste that is comparable to Cherokee Purple, my favorite tomato. The container plant produced more fruit, but they were more shriveled and didn't look as nice, even though they were in full sun. We had a long stretch without rain, so it is possible that I didn't water enough, but I won't try this variety in a container again.

    Wild Boar Farms out in California has a bunch of Berkeley Tie-Dye varieties, including Berkeley Tie-Dye, Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye, and Berkeley Tie-Dye Heart. I am growing Berkeley Tie-Dye and Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye side by side this year.

    Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye is a striking tomato of a deep red coloring with luminous green striping. It's a beautiful beefsteak-type tomato with excellent, excellent rich complex taste.

    I like Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye much, much more than Berkeley Tie-Dye. better. In fact, I don't want to grow Berkeley Tie-Dye again, but I would love to bring back Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye to grow again next year. The combo of taste and striking looks can't be beat.
