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!

Review:

We have shared this tomato all over the Tri-State area and everyone raves about the the size and taste. This is the same tomato my husband's parents grew years ago and it was called The Pink German TREE tomato. This does not have the disease resistance, so we use Tomato ladders, landscape cloth and pine needle mulch. The only problem I've had was blossom end rot and I remedied that by mixing pelleted lime in water and adding to the plants. I've had hundreds of lbs. of tomatoes to share with family and friends. I have a fence around my tomatoes that helps with these enormous plants. I have a local greenhouse grow them from Baker's Creek seed. Other tomatoes that are called Pink German with the Potato Leaf.......NOT THE SAME. This is my second year growing these from Baker Creek.

HUGE plant and fruit

What are the pros? Huge plant. Huge tomatoes

What are the cons? Need to rethink staking ;)

Review:

My soil this year is very good but this plant right now is about 9 feet tall and about 4 feet wide. Largest tomato plant I've ever grown. I also have a Carbon and Black Cherry plants growing which are doing very well also. I thought maybe I gave it too much nitrogen but it's producing a lot of fruit. It's been in the upper 90s for the past few weeks so some flowers aren't turning to fruit but as it cools down they will. I seriously have to rethink my staking method next year to accommodate these huge plants. Right now I do the Florida weave which has been great but I'll need to use 10 foot stakes next year. Only one has ripened so far but it tastes great. The tomato was huge as well and I've got about 6 or 7 more huge ones ready to ripen soon.

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.

Favorite tomato of the year

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.
