Henderson's Pink Ponderosa Tomato

87 days. Huge size, some over 2 lbs., a meaty pink-red beefsteak introduced by Peter Henderson & Co. in 1891, and the most famous of their varieties. Their 1903 catalog said "Quality Beyond Praise, Rich and meaty-sliced. Thick and delicious canned." Still popular with gardeners.

Review:

We thank our lucky stars for this tomato! We also received the Henderson Pinks free with an order. They are now a must plant for our garden and the closest in flavor to the beefsteak type tomatoes I remember from summers in Iowa as a child. The skin stays pink so you need to judge ripeness by touching/squeezing. Inside is a deep red color with so much flavor. We love it for slicing for sandwiches and salads and cooking. Gardening has been tough in South Central Texas. First year did great. Second year we abandoned the garden due to drought and well water with high salt content. This year we have a bumper crop of Henderson's Pink. I also work at the local post office and share our produce. Everyone raves about our tomatoes. If I had to say one garden item that is our star then it would be the Henderson's Pink - Thanks Baker Creek!!

Review:

I started these indoors, and they grew very quickly. They survived transplanting and turned into large healthy plants. I did not have any problems with bugs. However, each plant only produced a few tomatoes, which was disappointing. I also expected to see large softball-sized tomatoes, but even the biggest tomatoes were small to medium sized. I live in a Northern climate (near Boston, MA), so this might be because of our shorter season. The flavor is very good and what you would expect from an heirloom tomato. The shape is also attractive with lots of wrinkles. I would say that these are worth trying for the look and flavor, but they are not my favorite.

Review:

These aren't any better in flavor than any of the other big sweet slicers like Brandywine, Caspian pink, Ananas Noire, and many more...in fact, I like the flavor of those better. These are Bug Magnets!!! I have never had a bit of trouble with ANY of my other tomatoes concerning bugs, but these were just crawling with them, many different kinds! Not worth it when you can grow some others that are perfectly comparable!

Review:

Grew these in northern Penna in dusty ditch dirt with lots of small stones mixed with a dark thick clay soil in spots. The first year growing it was cold and wet all summer. These did amazing. We harvested some of the largest best tasting tomatoes I've ever grown. Great on a sandwich with a little mayo. The second year was cool and wet in the spring, hot and super dry all summer, then wet in the fall. This time they were not as well spaced as the year before. They were noticeably smaller this year, and they had a tendency to split when ripe, but given the other tomatoes I grew this was common last year. Small yield, but still great flavor. Would I grow these again? It's in my cart right now. Try these if you like good old fashioned tomato taste like grandmas were like or if you want a big, juicy, meaty slicer for your sandwich....this is your tomato.

Review:

These tomatoes are the best! We eat them like apples, besides on sandwiches and in salads. Our neighbors and friends loved them too and ask for more. 2012 was a rather short growing season up here in Northern Idaho, but we started them inside and put them in our little Community Garden Plot. where the did well. I am going to start my seeds for the season here shortly and these will be among the first I do! We were in central California the year before and the plants came up and grow to be good size bushes, but only got a couple blossoms and not one plant. They were right beside my Roma plants that did well. Guess they like a little cooler climate! Try them....You WILL love them!!
