German Pink Tomato

85-90 days. One of the tomatoes that originally ignited the heirloom movement in America, this variety originated in Bavaria. It made its US debut in 1883, brought here by Michael Ott, a great-grandfather of Seed Savers Exchange co-founder Diane Ott Whealy. The luxuriant potato-leaf plants give high yields of 1- to 2-lb, nearly seedless meaty fruit. The prestigious Slow Foods USA Ark of Taste enthused: “a full sweet flavor, even floral, and...tender skinned.” These gorgeous pink fruits are extremely versatile, excellent for canning and freezing but also for slicing and juicing. This one is sure to become a favorite in your garden!

What are the pros? Taste, yield

Review:

Heavy producers, make sure you stake well. Will be using cattle panels to support them this year. Good canning tomato. I canned over 100 pounds from 4 plants and also canned a few pounds of tomato soup, ate what I could fresh. All tomatoes were over 1 lb. the biggest being 2.25 lb. Best tomato I have tasted thus far. Matured late, but so did my other varieties, I believe that because of the summer starting off cooler than normal. Plants reached 8 ft tall or a little more.

Great tomato

What are the pros? Productive, large

What are the cons? None

Review:

These tomatoes were the most productive in the garden, we had drought early in the season and had some trouble with blossom end rot on the early tomatoes, but these had the least amount of trouble and the ones formed after the rain were very large, meaty, canned and juiced well. They taste great and I even won a ribbon in the county fair. I will definitely grow these again.

Best tomato ever

What are the pros? Easy to grow and high yield

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew these for the first time this season, along with two other varieties from Baker Creek. From the start these were the healthiest seedlings of the bunch, and have turned out to be the biggest producers. Tomatoes are HUGE, and have a great flavor. The only complaint that I have is that the fruit are so heavy that some of them break off the vines on their own! I'll definitely grow these again next year.

Satisfying to watch grow.
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Huge fruit

What are the cons? Mediocre texture

Review:

Although these don't mature quickly, I give them 3.5 because the two plants I grew produced copious amounts of fruit in an area where we often pick green tomatoes at the end of the season and hope for the best. Most of the fruits were in the 1.5 lb-2 lb range. Lovely heft, tender flesh, but not a huge amount of flavor. We used most of ours for sauce. That said, they were super fun to watch grow, and productive for this novice gardener.
