Big, pink fruits are very rich-tasting, certainly a favorite pink tomato. This potato-leaf variety has a long history in the “Show Me” state. It was grown since the Civil War by the Barnes family, who grew it as an ornamental, believing (as many people did at the time) that tomatoes or “love apples” were poisonous. We are grateful the Barnes family kept this variety going so we can enjoy the wonderful fruit today.

What are the pros? Vigorous plants, great taste

What are the cons? Can't ripen fast enough for me

Review:

I've begun harvesting from my 8 plants and just love the love apple! I started seeds indoors and transplanted to the garden mid-May, 6 plants in the ground, 2 in a large container. All 8 plants are strong and vigorous growers. There are love apples galore on all the plants. I used blossom set during the hot spell to help keep flowers from withering-with mixed results. I've had no problem with diseases and just a few horn worms early in June. The vines are indeterminate and continue to flower. I guess I'm impatient when it comes to ripening, wanting the fruit to instantly turn color. And now that they have, I'm in tomato heaven with luscious, juicy, pink-red, perfect- for -slicing tomatoes. So far I've had tomato sandwiches with a variety of cheeses and have made raw tomato pasta sauce with garlic and basil from the garden. I'll be canning some in the next few days, after a tomato sandwich lunch! I recommend this variety. My old standby was AK Traveler, this is my new favorite!

What are the pros? Excellent flavor and yield

What are the cons? None

Review:

Very large tomato with extraordinarily high yield of gorgeous tomatoes. Not sure why they call it pink, since mine is certainly closer to red on my plant. All have been large, plump, very meaty, and over a pound on average. These are good for everything, including drying. If you can only hrow one potato leaf variety, this is the one I want to grow from now on.

Review:

This is my first year growing this variety, and it will be a staple in my garden for years to come. I started them indoors in February and planted out in May. This variety has been the most vigorous by far, and is already producing heavily. The tomatoes are good size, beautiful, and very tasty.

Review:

This is a great tomato, beautiful LARGE pink tomato that has beautiful flavor, excellent slicer. They almost look too pretty to cut. My plants didn't get enough water in the part of the of the garden as other tomatoes so the plants were not as tall or vigorous as they could have been if given more consistent water, however they still produced rather well considering the plant's size. Next year will be trying again with manure and better watering. For an heirloom this old, it's worth trying for yourself.
