Tomato Tuesday-Wildthyme Bicolor

This was another variety I received from a forum member and it is not available through any vendors. Wildthyme Bicolor is one of many segregates from a creation called Wildthyme Mix. Since it's creation by Bill Jeffers there has been a bicolor, green when ripe, purple and pink varieties that were segregated out from the original cross. This plant is indeterminate with potato leaves. It produced beautiful bicolor beefsteak tomatoes for me. This was another plant that was almost destroyed by the hail storm. I am so glad it bounced back and it produced for me up until the first frost. The flavor was great and it will be returning to my garden again in the future!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Tomato Tuesday post. Stop by next week to see which variety I will be spotlighting from my 2014 garden.


  1. Very pretty. One of the prettiest recombinations I have seen.
