I grow Bradley every year. Yes, it will do well in your zone. Mine are usually producing in high gear in late July to early August. Most of the time, I get a few more fruits in a second crop. The plants really don't go down until first frost.

I treat it like it was a pink Rutgers. Great canning tomato and also great for fresh eating. Size is usually around 6-10 oz's.

Good, commonly grown tomato. Been popular for years. New Big Dwarf is one that is often discussed here. Personally I prefer Clear Pink Early, which I'm glad to see seeds available for again.
