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!

Review:

This was the first HUGE tomato that I have ever grown, WOW!!!! The first flower cluster had three blossoms and I let them be so they set three fruit. The heaviest of the cluster grew to 1.19kgs, the second weighed in at 800gms and I forgot to weigh the third but it was slightly smaller than the second. It was the show stopper of my garden with everyone that saw it asking if it was GMO hahaha! I had to keep telling them that it was Heirloom & I was growing organically!!! I trellised my tomatoes up a string and maintain one vine, not sure if this contributed but thought I'd mention this. I did have challenges in my raised bed this year with a wilt and all my plants didn't last past 4 months, so I've switched beds and I'm looking forward to better growth next time!!! I've saved seed for my next planting, this is definitely a keeper and I'm giving my friends seed as well.

What are the pros? Huge fruit

What are the cons? Very few fruit.

Review:

The fruit taste was amazing. About 2 to almost 3 pounds a fruit. Despite so many blooms very few developed into a full grown fruit. I'm not sure if that was the nature of the fruit or the lack of pollinator.

Review:

I'm SO glad I decided to give this variety another go this season. Last season I was very unlucky in the tomato department and this variety was no exception. Not a single tomato survived for me to sample. So this year I planted three German Pink seedlings and they grew into healthy, strong, prolific producers of huge, meaty, delicious pink tomatoes that I had the pleasure of eating fresh in a variety of different dishes (very versatile!!!) and putting away a huge excess for my family's enjoyment for months to come. The German Pink, Dr. Wyche's, and Hungarian Heart were my favorites this season... great producers!

Review:

We have been growing these in our greenhouse; second year for cuttings, and the first year I bought the original plant at our local Ace Hardware, so that is three years total, from one potted purchase. They are heavy and very mild. My husband, who rarely eats any raw tomatoes, likes these. So far, in the greenhouse, they can have a tendency for their skin to split, but not always. Maybe we are too far north, and the nights get too cool, so ripening may be slower than usual. But I think I will be growing this tomato as long as our cuttings keep rooting. It is wonderful!
