Tomato, Missouri Pink Love Apple
75-85 days. Big, pink fruit 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.
