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? Easy and delicious

What are the cons? None that I can think of.

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!

What are the pros? Tasty; huge; color; meaty

What are the cons? Doesn't set fruit in high heat

Review:

I was looking forward to this tomato quite a bit. I heard good things about it, and it was a nice pink color. Anyway, the tomato is potato leaf. It doesn't set fruit in extreme heat (i.e. it's not heat-tolerant). The tomatoes take a while to ripen. The tomatoes are enormous, although they're not heavy (they seem to have a low water content). They're meaty, but they're meaty all throughout (not just on the outer walls). I feel kind of like I'm slicing ham when I slice it. The flavor is great for a meaty tomato. They actually are a nice pink color. The plants grow well and look nice. They're indeterminate. They taste great even if they ripen in the shade (which is a remarkable quality).

What are the pros? tasty

What are the cons? not a German pink

Review:

Again this year there are a few mis-labeling issues? Last year it was the two different sweet potato squash varieties this year it is the German tomatoes. The plants from the German Pink tomatoes appear to be producing German Lunchbox tomatoes. They are very nice and meaty and a uniform egg shape. They are nice enough but not the tomato I thought I was getting.

Review:

This is the only, and I mean only, tomato I will eat fresh. I really just dislike tomatoes unless they're cooked or processed somehow. These are sweet and not acidy at all. They have a texture a lot like a beefsteak, thick with not a ton of seeds and firm. While I think they're the greatest thing ever, my husband does not like them as a stand alone tomato. He likes the acidy ones I guess. I had 100% germination and my 4 year old broke one almost in two transplanting and it still survived. Definitely hardy. Also of mention, the deer have not been interested in my tomatoes this year.
