Indeterminate. Heirloom. A spectacular tomato from its yellow flesh with red marbling, to its rich, pineapple flavor and meaty texture. Large 1-2 lb fruits are late season and worth the wait. Use two hands to carry this great big slicer in from your garden.
Tomato – Pineapple – Lycopersicon esculentum
Soil and Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.
Planting and Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2″ apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest when fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.
