Incredible creamy flesh with superior richness!
High yields of dark pink, unblemished globes which average 6-10 oz. Flesh is robust with a rich sweetness. Thin-skinned, but not to the point of making them fragile. Plants are very prolific and seemingly disease resistant, at least to Late Blight.
In many ways, Rose de Berne is the 'Brandywine' of continental Europe - it has many strains, and is considered to be the most famous and flavorful tomato in France, Germany & Switzerland.
HISTORY: A French heirloom formerly registered in the French catalog of the GNIS. Tatiana offers this insight: "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."
