To me, a fresh, juicy, delicious tomato is just like candy. And not only does this tomato taste like a sweet treat, it looks like one too!
Blue Gold Berries is about the size of a nickel. The tomatoes grow in clusters and have a golden-yellow skin and flesh with purple-blue shoulders. They look amazing! It may be hard for some people to believe that they’re actually even tomatoes. (The unripe tomatoes look pretty cool too—they’re green on the bottom with purple-blue shoulders.)
In the Kitchen
Blue Gold Berries tomatoes are sweet with a mild acidity.
Along with a great taste, they’re super juicy too. They don’t tend to crack like some other varieties, making them great for leaving in a bowl on the kitchen counter to snack on throughout the day…and that’s if they even make it into the house from the garden!
I think this is a great tomato for a veggie platter to surprise guests.
Grow Your Own
This amazing tomato has an indeterminate growth habit, meaning it will continue growing and producing delicious and beautiful tomatoes until it’s killed by frost or disease at the end of the season.
I recommend training your plants if you have a limited amount of growing space. You can do this by caging, staking, or trellising.
