Debbie’s Pink is the product of a selective breeding program begun by Dr. Weaver over 25 years ago. The pink, plump pear-shaped fruit about 4 inches tall and 2 inches in diameter at the bottom is a 1998 selection of Mr. Jack, a red tomato created in 1993 by crossing Red Fig with a Mexican landrace called Tomate enrollado rojo. The new pink selection was named in honor of Debbie Warden of Mill Hollow Farm (Delaware County, Pennsylvania) where we grew the tomato on large scale for final breeding stability. Debbie’s Pink has proved to be quite a hit with Philadelphia chefs and has been featured on a number of upscale menus. The indeterminate vines require staking and do very well on trellises in greenhouses.
