Rose De Berne Tomato
Rose de Berne is a dependable and beautiful tomato for general purpose use. Its fruits are blocky, on the squat side, with a warm hue that is nearly peachy, often with a spot of yellow. Their skin is smooth and taut, pulled against a unique "architecture" that suggests subtle vertical ribbing. The flesh is tasty, on the dry side, great for cooking, slicing, and saucing. Plucking them off the vine, you know you're getting something eminently useful. Plus, a line of these pink globes on a windowsill is the very essence of mid-Augustness.
