I've grown Rose de Berne for several years. Tomatoes are smooth, without blemishes and uniform in size and shape. Sweet and slightly spicy, it is a favorite at the market. Very reliable producer.

Of european heritage. I received seed from France but have read it is a Swiss heirloom.

pink-red fruit. interesting flower trusses which sometimes regenerate into a new growing point rather than terminating.

Unique exquisite flavor which can vary year to year. Best in hot drier years. Always unique though. Tends to be fairly early to medium in maturity. It's the one I bite into and let squirt everywhere letting me know the "good ones" are here.

Sometimes called "Rose of Berne" in English written seed catalogs.

Seemed to "tolerate" leaf disease better than most.
