Rose de Berne

A lovely deep pink heirloom from Europe that is often called the “Brandywine of Europe” and a favorite there. Fruit are medium, 4-8 oz, very pretty and blemish free. The skin is thin but rarely cracks and the fruit are both meaty and juicy.

The rich flavor is a favorite of many with a great balance of sugar and acids. Production is very good right up until the end of the season as it appears to have some late blight resistance.


From Tatiana’s TOMATObase:

  • French Heirloom. Some sources indicate that it is from Switzerland, probably because Bern (or Berne, to use the French spelling) is the capital city of Switzerland. There is an apple variety from Switzerland called "Rose de Berne", and this variety is known in France. Some may speculate that this is where the tomato name came from, as it resembles the apple in shape and color.
  • Nine commercial sources were noted for 2004 in the Garden Seed Inventory 6th edition.

Some of this strain was given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by Ulla Grall of Bio-Saatgut in Germany. Here is an interesting article about Ulla Grall and her work.
