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? Big fruit

What are the cons? Patience required

Review:

These tomatoes are good for the person who like their tomatoes large! The problem is, because they're a large-fruited variety, they take a while to mature. They stay green on the plant for a long time before they turn pink. They also have the tendency to have a hard core, and the fruit is not as seedless as described, but still meaty and makes a good hamburger or sandwich tomato. Can also be frozen. Has a mildly sweet flavor. I will grow these again!

Not suited to humid climates
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Nice flavor

What are the cons? Prone to disease in the south

Review:

Started indoors along with 6 other varieties. Germinated quickly at almost 100%. Plants grew well until our humidity kicked in around May.I believe because of the very wide foliage that this variety is not a good candidate for high humidity. Although we did get nice fruits for a while the plants did not last thru August. What did ripen was good toasting large and nicely formed. Darn humidity.

What are the pros? Pleasant taste

What are the cons? Low yield, skin problems

Review:

German Pinks generally taste like sweeter, milder Brandywines. Unfortunately, it turned out that the local hornworms had a taste for fine German cuisine and they gobbled up most of my tomatoes. The seedlings flourished in a pot and grew five feet tall, however, they yielded only a handful of tomatoes. Many of them had thin skin problems, which caused them to quickly rot after ripening. Better luck next year.

What are the pros? Size, Colour & Taste

What are the cons? Few flower buds up the vine

Review:

This was the first HUGE tomato that I have ever grown, WOW!!!! The first flower cluster had three blossoms and I let them be so they set three fruit. The heaviest of the cluster grew to 1.19kgs, the second weighed in at 800gms and I forgot to weigh the third but it was slightly smaller than the second. It was the show stopper of my garden with everyone that saw it asking if it was GMO hahaha! I had to keep telling them that it was Heirloom & I was growing organically!!! I trellised my tomatoes up a string and maintain one vine, not sure if this contributed but thought I'd mention this. I did have challenges in my raised bed this year with a wilt and all my plants didn't last past 4 months, so I've switched beds and I'm looking forward to better growth next time!!! I've saved seed for my next planting, this is definitely a keeper and I'm giving my friends seed as well.
