- 80 days, indet., regular leaf, medium-large perfect round oblate dark pink fruits, very pretty and blemish free, 6-8, but we had a fruit reaching 19 oz! Very juicy, thin skin, very good flavor.

- A.k.a. Rose of Berne. Large vines need caging or staking, 62 days, good production of 4-6 oz round deep rose pink juicy fruit that are free of any blemishes. Highly recommended - this is one that I will grow regularly for comparing against the flavor of my “experimental” varieties. The size of fruit I obtain (and that described by numerous sources, typically described as being in the 6-8 oz range) are significantly smaller than what Tatiana reports.

- 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.
