Tlacalula Pink Tomato

75-85 days. A unique tomato collected by a friend in Tlacalula, Mexico; the pear-shaped fruit have deep ribs and ruffles that give them a distinctive look. They have a mild, sweet, pink flesh and pink skin with gold-splotched shoulders. A rare tomato grown in Mexico for several generations.

What are the pros? vigorous, productive, pretty

What are the cons? bland, a little watery

Review:

Wait until they are red. Then they will have a red tomato taste, on the bland side. When I tried them pink they were so tasteless I threw them out. These are the most vigorous tomatoes I have ever grown, large upright branching plants. They were in a raised irrigated bed, and they might have more flavor in leaner, dryer conditions like the southwest. Very pretty but marred by splits - likely too much water.

What are the pros? Shape, hardiness, flavor

What are the cons? not much

Review:

These were another tomato that did well considering my lack of care. The taste is quite good with a balance of acid and sweetness. Green shoulders look cool to.

What are the pros? Fast, early, artistic

What are the cons? disease, texture

Review:

Had many hopes for his one. Planted many, in different locations. My Uncle grew some in Upstate NY too. The fruit was nice, but oddly dry-ish inside. Flavor started out good. But ALL succumbed to a yellow, wilting disease the hit the leaves, stems, and fruit. They did not last long once they started fruiting.

Review:

I attempted to grow 7 plants. The fruit is small and ranges from tiny bells to larger bells like the one in the picture. The flavor isn't bad but the yield and the size of the fruit wasn't extraordinary. The fruit is too big to toss whole into salads and too small to cut for sandwiches. Nice novelty... but if you want food... I'd pass on it.

Review:

I have been growing these tomatoes this summer in the lower deserts of Arizona -- a very difficult growing region. However they have performed beautifully, creating a tomato so sweet you can smell the sugar when you bite into one off the vine. The shapes and colors are stunning, and this is easily the most sought after tomato in my community garden. Adults and kids alike eat them like mother nature's candy.
