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.

Review:

Again this year I grew this tomato, after falling in love with it last year! It has not disappointed me at all. The saved seeds all sprouted and are growing well. I have 10 plants, producing fruits at various stages. The horn worms seemed to have ignored this variety while doing some small damage to my black vernissage, Amish paste, AK travelers and peppers. They are juicy, more red than pink and have a nice sweet/acid balance. I have a bit of trouble knowing just when to pick because the bottoms get soft before the tops fully ripen. (There are no dark end rot spots.) Perhaps I'm missing some sign of ripeness. Or with the almost drought conditions in south-central MO, the heat and dryness might be a factor in this problem. But, I love the love apple on sandwiches, in salads and diced with olive oil, garlic and basil tossed into pasta. This is a fine example of an heirloom variety which is well suited for its " home" area. It might also do well in areas of similar climate (zone 6).

What are the pros? Health, Taste, Color

What are the cons? Could ripen faster

Review:

Having had home-grown tomatoes since childhood, I am particular about the growth of the plant, tidiness, taste and texture, and like the old varieties. I just had my first Pink Love tomato, and WOW. PERFECT combination of sweet, rich taste, with great restraint on acidity. The rich taste overrides the desire for acid, especially good for people who have outgrown their tolerance to acid. I started my plant inside, and it grew steadily, in great health, and not fussy. I had to desucker it a bit, but the 2 plus pound suits are awesome. Pink Love is truly an outstanding individual, and one I'll forever grow. Can't emphasize enough the great value of growing it.

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.
