Rosalita Tomato

Rosalita' is a fantastic pink grape tomato. Super sweet yet tangy little morsels of sunshine. The perfect snacking tomato out in the field. Our original stock came from Vicki Emlaw in Prince Edward County, Ontario (an island-like peninsula in the northernmost part of Lake Ontario), where its early production (as soon as 55 days) is especially welcome. But despite having some northern heritage, these plants stay in production practically until the first frost hits and can handle plenty of heat and drought. We have also never found any 'Rosalita' plants impacted by early or late blight. The leaves are regular and the growth habit is indeterminate. As hard as we've tried, we still have yet to learn where these pink gems originated, so if you have any knowledge on the subject, please let us know (we assume it was named by a big Bruce Springsteen fan). An uncommonly wonderful grape tomato — and the only truly pink one we've ever seen — 'Rosalita' will become a mainstay in your garden. Seeds grown ecologically in Elmer, NJ, by the Experimental Farm Network Cooperative.

What are the pros? Productivity, pink color

What are the cons? flavor, weak plants

Review:

Lots of runts, but I was able to select and grow out a few decent plants early on. Plants produce an abundance of fruit, and the first few I tasted were sweet, but had a funky background flavor to it. Tried it several times throughout the season, flavor didn't improve: the aftertaste was horrendous, even during our weeks of heatwaves when most other tomato varieties were at their peak flavor. Had 13 other tomato varieties growing with exact same water and soil, many of which produced outstanding fruit. Some tomatoes just don't like the 55-60F night temps that we consistently get here in the Bay Area, and I think Rosalita is one of them. Perhaps this variety would taste better grown in Southern Cali, TX, and part of the east coast?
