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? Flavor, size & texture

What are the cons? Waiting for them to ripen

Review:

I started late, in new raised beds this year, the soil was junk and depleted of nutrients, and these still produced. The color was beautiful, the flavor was amazing, and I frequently decided to have tomato sandwiches for lunch just because one of these came ripe. I only planted one plant, but intend to put several in the ground next year because this was my favorite. Next year, I vow to amend the soil better, start my seeds earlier and plant more, just to have more of these tomatoes.

Review:

Great find!! I was looking for a Pink German Tomato that my dad used to raise. I also remembered several years ago that had grown a tree tomato that had grown over top of a friends out building and kept them in tomatoes all year long. This Pink German tomato I believe is the same as the tree tomato. I had a greenhouse tell me that Pink Brandywine and Pink German were the same. Pink Brandywine and Pink German look the same with the Potato leaf, but that is where the comparison ends. I have several people asking for this Pink German Tree tomato and have a greenhouse starting them to meet the demand.

Review:

When I was a kid, my mother grew tomatoes of a variety her father had brought over with him from Germany. She greatly valued these tomatoes, as they were a family heirloom. However, one year when she was growing the only seeds in her posession, my cat knocked over the seedlings, killing all of them. She was devastated. When I started growing my garden, I wanted to try and find that variety so that I could give her back the plants/ seeds that she lost all those years ago. She only had the description of large, , pink beefsteak type that were very sweet and flavorful- and of course I also knew they came from Germany. I'd tried several varieties, none were seemingly right according to her. Last year I found this one and we grew it this year: BINGO. Thank you for helping my mother and I get our family heirloom tomato back!

Review:

The German Pink Tomato is one of my absolute favorite tomatoes. They are deliciously sweet. Mine have been weighing in between 1 and 2 pounds. This year I've had a few that are smaller than a pound and last year I had a few weighing in at 2lbs! The fruit has few seeds and no cracking. They are, however, one of the last of my tomatoes to ripen. I will continue growing these in the future.

I grew these in tomato cages, and they were very easy to grow. The plants grew very tall and produced heavily. The tomatoes were large in size and had great flavor. I would definitely grow these again.
