Details

This disease resistant variety was released in 1961 by Dr. Joe McFerran of the University of Arkansas. Dr. Joe named this tomato in honor of his father, Bradley McFerran, but many people believe that it was named after Bradley County. Bradley tomatoes are delicious and sweet, with just enough acidity to give you that old-fashioned big tomato flavor that is loved by many. These 7-10 oz. dark pink tomatoes are smooth with solid meaty interiors. The tomatoes ripen at the same time making them a great variety for canning and freezing. They’re suitable for Southern regions but grow well in most places, including here in Michigan.
