Bradley is one of the all time Southern favorites chosen by commercial field tomato growers. Bradley tomato plants are a reliable, productive plant that has fairly good cover, producing attractive, smooth pink fruit with a tasty mild flavor. A disease resistant variety released in 1961 by Dr. Joe McFerran of the University of Arkansas. Bradley tomato seeds produce delicious, sweet tomatoes that are well balanced with just enough acidity to give you that old-fashioned big tomato flavor you love so much. Tomatoes ripen at the same time making it a great variety for canning and freezing. Plants bred by Universities in other hot or humid climates make for great growing here in South Florida. We’ve been growing this variety for home growers for about 7 years now, its a classic at this point.
