One of the best tasting heirloom tomatoes on the market! 

Pineapples tomatoes are best known for their ribbed body (they're closely related to a Beefsteak Tomato), orangish skin, and their marbled yellow, orange, and red flesh. 

Their taste is delicious, and best described as mildly sweet and fruity. This makes them perfect for so many things as they wonderfully compliment a variety of flavors without overpowering them. Best used in sauces, salsas, sandwiches, and salads. 

Pineapple Tomatoes have a slightly slower than average maturation rate, and should begin to produce their first harvests sometime in the middle of summer, often sustaining their production of crops until mid-fall. One may expect ripe tomatoes about 70-80 days after planting one of our starter plants.

Pineapple Tomato is an indeterminate variety of tomato, often referred to as a vine or cordon tomato. This means; unlike a determinate variety, they keep growing and producing tomatoes from the beginning of the summer until early fall (determinate varieties stop growing at a certain height, then produce all of their crop within a short time frame). 

Does not require staking or caging, although we highly suggest doing such. It grows as a vine, so un-staked plants will travel along the ground, causing their fruit to be more susceptible to rot. Pineapple tomatoes are very large and heavy, so a strong stake or cage is suggested. 


Pineapple Tomato Plant Care

Pineapple Tomatoes will likely tolerate temperatures above 40°F, but it's suggested to attempt to keep them in temperatures above 55°F.

Plant 36" apart.

Suggest planting late-March through May depending on temperatures in your area. Keep in temperatures above 55°F. 

Does best in temperatures between 75°F and 95°F.

Likes organic, rich soil with lots of drainage. 

Make sure to water regularly and attempt to keep soil moist but not wet. 

Give early dose of high nitrogen organic fertilizer either when planting or as a part of soil preparation.

Will benefit from a high phosphorus organic fertilizer once established, just prior to or after it begins to produce fruit. 

Suggest caging, or staking and providing something to climb, although not required. Unsupported plants will likely grow on the ground in a somewhat vine-like fashion, which will drastically increase the potential of rotting fruit. 

You'll know your Pineapple Tomatoes are ready to harvest once their skin matures to a shade of orange, and are firm, yet bouncy when squeezed.

Toxicity and Risks of Pineapple Tomatoes

Tomato plants are actually considered toxic. They're members of the nightshade family, and produce an alkaloid called tomatine. 

This alkaloid is most present in the unripe fruit, the stem, and the leaves of a tomato plant.

Tomatine is toxic when ingested in extremely large doses, it may cause gastrointestinal problems, liver, and even heart damage.

tomato plant

The pineapple tomato plant I bought was a very healthy plant.It was a nice size too to be put in the ground. But unfortunately I live in a cold climate and it won't be planted until beginning of May hopefully.

Thanks for your review, Anita!
