Is it a mango? A grapefruit? Nope! The Pineapple Tomato defies the usual definitions with its red-yellow fruits that weigh in at 1-2 pounds each! A good lookin’, great tastin’ heirloom that is ready in 75-95 days. Indeterminate.
Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors and transplant to the garden after the last frost date. Choose a sunny location and provide plants plenty of room by spacing two feet apart in rows separated by five feet. Provide support and mulch well to conserve moisture and reduce weeds.
Fruit that is fully ripened on the vine has a much fuller flavor than fruits that are picked early and then allowed to ripen. However, if temperatures drop, you’ll want to bring all fruits (green or not) indoors. Store in a cool, dark spot — or paper bag — and green fruits will turn red within a week or two.
