The first few were red but now the others as they attempt to ripen are orange. They are Burpee Seedless. And the skin is quite tough.

From the above link please note the feedback and especially the one where the person said they do turn orange.

http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/tomato/msg12142515652.html

The above link is a discussion of this variety at another website when Burpee first brought it out.

Even if someone paid me I wouldn't buy any tomato seed from Burpee. They used to be a great company but not anymore and made it through bankrupcy to continue existing. Many of us are really mad at them for stealing the names of varieties that are heirlooms and well known, and then doing a simple cross to create a hybrid for which they can get more money for seeds.

The Tye Dye one and Black Perle, or however they spell it, are two examples. The first from Brad Gates Tye Dye one and the second from Black Cherry introduced by TGS as bred by Vince Sapp, now deceased, and former husband of Linda who still runs TGS.

Did I forget to mention that I don't like Burpee? LOL

I don't know as to the thread question, but Burpee seeds offered at lowes in the spring have always been pretty good. Then again local always did thrill me..

Thank you for the reply. I won't be planting these again as they have been a disappointment after the first few of them. Back to my Celebrity, Early Girl and Sweet 100's

But, you gave them a try and that's good. I think trying at least one new tomato each year is fun. You might find one you love that way.
