(Black Pineapple) A most exciting new tomato, it is wonderful in every way. This unusual variety was developed by Pascal Moreau, a horticulturist from Belgium. The multi-colored, smooth fruit (green, yellow and purple mix) weigh about 1 1/2 lbs. The flesh is bright green with deep red streaks. Everyone loves their superb flavor that is outstanding, being both sweet and smoky with a hint of citrus. The yield is one of the heaviest we have ever seen! Be the first at your farmer's market to have this new classic.

What are the pros? hella huge production

What are the cons? non distinctive flavor

Review:

Grew this tomato this year with 15 other varieties. Holy cow!!! - it FAR outperformed anything else I've ever seen in my garden. Incredible heat tolerance--not even slowing down in consistent 95F. It started producing early and was the last plant to be pulled out in November. I can't say enough good things about this plant which potentially make it a breeder's dream. However I wouldn't recommend it. Draw backs include short hang time of fruit (similar to other complex greens that I've tried), a less than spectacular flavor, and it doesn't lend itself to freezing and making sauce at all - the color (turned brownish) and texture (stringy and watery-not pasty and meaty) just isn't there.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, Gorgeous, Tasty

What are the cons? Very delicate skin

Review:

Delicious and really beautiful tomato. Juicy and lovely flavor. Wonderful sliced or cooked. The skin is incredibly thin so use care during harvesting and not that these do not keep well, so best to pick a day early, finish ripening on counter, and eat as soon as they are ripe (this is never a strain as they are very good fruits).

Good looking but some problems

What are the pros? big, colorful, high yield

What are the cons? blossom/end rot, uneven ripen

Review:

The plant grows extremely vigorously and sets alot of fruit, but I've been finding that many of the tomatoes are rotten/black/brown on the bottom or within the multiple folds of the tomato. Even though it says the variety is smooth, mine are very folded/ribbed. When I can get one to ripen evenly it's great, but many of the half rotten ones seem to ripen only on one side, etc. Also, like another reviewer there are these bumps coming out of the stems that ants seem attracted too. The plant continues to grow and set fruit, so it doesn't seem like a problem but I don't know what it is.

What are the pros? Amazing color and flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

Every year I grow at least 10-15 varieties of heirloom tomato, adding a few new ones each year and dropping some of the less desirable ones. Year after year Ananas Noir comes out on top. They are gorgeous sliced and have a wonderful, mild flavor. They are very productive and fruit early. I can't imagine ever not growing them.

What are the pros? Early, Prolific, fruity flavor

What are the cons? Prone to Blossom End Rot

Review:

These tomatoes knocked my socks off. They produced very heavily, one of the earliest to ripen (before the cherries even). The stems are very vigorous. The taste is very fruity, sweet, complex. Truly one of the coolest tasting tomatoes. The only knock is that I tend to lose about 1/3 of the harvest to blossom end rot, whereas no other variety suffers from this malady in my garden. Nevertheless, this amazing variety gets a spot in my garden until death do we part.
