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 U.S. 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.” This gorgeous pink fruit is 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? Tomato size

What are the cons? Easily diseased

Review:

I hate to have to be down on these tomatoes. When I've gotten 1 to eat, it was delicious. However I've tried these time and time because they taste so darn good. But every year no matter where I plant, how I prune or how I treat them they succumb to some disease so quickly they're a total fail. Whether I grew in the ground, raised bed or a pot they are die before they produce anything. I grow at least 8 varieties a year, 40 plants and I've saved any plant not doing well except this one. They've died of wilt, early blight, late blight and even me looking at them wrong. It's just not a hardy plant. I planted 3 this year and that was it to take 1 last stab at it. 2 plants are already dying and the 3rd seems ok but only has a couple flowers just starting. I'll hoping for 1 tomato before this one commits suicide too.

What are the pros? Taste, Prolific

What are the cons? A bit slow to mature

Review:

My first year growing these and I loved them. They were not the first type to mature, but once they did it was in full force. They taste wonderful and had lots of meat inside for salsa and marinara. I will grow these every year now! Had no problems with diseases of any kind with them. Wonderful.

EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

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.

What are the pros? Great Tomato

What are the cons? Not a hybrid, disease prone

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!
