Pineapple Tomato

Another of the heirloom tomatoes is ripe! This one is called 'Pineapple'.



It is quite a large tomato, with an irregular shape. This one is about 4 1/2 inches across. The color is kind of a streaked yellow and red....a very pretty tomato!



Here is a photo of the inside flesh. The taste is wonderful! Reminds me a little of Brandywine, but sweeter, yet just tangy enough for a delicious tomato taste. As with most heirloom tomatoes it is subject to splitting and is a bit on the soft side. I grow this one for Dear Husband, as it is one of his favorites. We like to slice and eat it with just a sprinkling of salt.... yummm!

Connie, I can see why you spend time out in your garden, it is a beautiful world that surrounds you out there.
I love the butterfly pic and the hummingbird was awesome, you are a great photographer! I am sure that tomato will be good, what splendid color.

Me said...

Oh, beautiful. We had BLTs last night and my Brandywine slices were bigger than the slices of bread - Yum!!

BTW I wanted to ask - you worm compost right? I am checking. Yep, Zone 5. What do you do with your castings in the winter? Do you just store them outside and let them freeze?

I am not ready to harvest castings yet but it will come and probably after it freezes.

I read Amy Stewart's book 'The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms' and she mentions that they can get kind of weird textured when dried out.

That's amazing! I've never heard of that variety. Does it taste good? Your brandywine look fabulous too, I love to make salsa with my tomatoes. I'm also growing tomatillos this year.

Pineapple? Never heard of that one, I may have to try it. My Brandywine's aren't ready yet, a few more days, I can't wait!

Hi Connie:
Thanks for visiting my blog! Yes, the ND - is for North Dakota. Are you from ND originally?Whereabouts? I live in Fargo and the gardening bug bit me about 5 years ago. It's wonderful, I just wish we had a longer growing season here ...

What beautiful photos of the hummingbirds with your zinnias. I just cleared away an area in the backyard specifically for a zinnia cutting garden. Thanks for the insight into my new garden space I agree - sometimes you just have to go with your heart on what you want in there! Keep in touch ...

It is wonderful to be in tomato season! Love those fresh picked off the vine sweetness after tasting those imports and hothouse variety for so long! I have never heard of this pineapple tomato!!hugs NG

Yummmmm! I have not heard of pineapple tomatoes. You would enjoy a trip to Seed Savers Exchange in Decorah, IA.

Looks great! I love the colorful flesh.

Looks like a yummie tomato on a very nice plate too. Heirloom tomatoes don't always keep very well but as most taste great you won't be able to keep them anyway, they have all been polished off. ;-)

I had never heard of pineapple tomato - it's beautiful - and very different. I love the heirlooms - the taste is just so wonderful!

Connie said...

Beth - You don't have an email listed, so please go to my profile and email me, so we can chat more about N. Dak. ...Thanks!

I've never heard of the tomato either and was sure I was going to read it tasted like a pineapple in your post.

The marbling is very nice.

Lovely blog!

I quickly picked up another tomato plant at my local Whole Foods market not looking at the tag on it until later. It indicated that it was a pineapple tomato, so now I am really looking forward to the tomatoes from this plant!

So pretty and unusual!

sorry i just had to share this...

i came upon your blog simply google searching 'pineapple tomato' as i just picked--and ate--my first one from my own garden today (and it was really good!) but what i found was that there is someone else out there who not only also grows pineapple tomatoes (which isn't that odd) but has the exact same dishes i have (the green ones you use for scale in some of the tomato pictures) AND uses the same blog template as i do! (that IS odd--that's a lot of things to have in common!)

beautiful pictures and beautiful blog!

I planted 7 different Heirloom tomatoes this year and this was my favorite. Unfortunately, the sun bleached out all the markers I had labeled my tomatoes with and so I had no idea what to call my favorite or what seeds to buy next year! So here I am, having found your site and you have very beautiful and perfectly representative photos of this great tomato! Thanks to you I will no longer refer to the "Pineapple" tomato as the "Tie-dyed" tomato!
