Late season. Indeterminate.
Huge tomatoes with sweet, mild unique flavor.
Beautiful fruits are red, yellow and orange swirled together.
We can have temperatures in the 100's but nighttime temps in the 50's here, and Pinapple is one of the few to set fruit well in those conditions.
Most cold-hardy and drought-resistant large tomato we have seen, with fruits still ripening after a month of light frosts at night.
Doesn't like rain or overhead watering--keep foliage dry. Strong vines support clusters of big fruit. Resistant to blossom-end rot as well.
BOTANICAL NAME: Solanum lycopersicum
Start in flats or pots 2 months or so before setting out. Transplant into well-composted soil after danger of frost is past. Set plants several inches deeper than in the pot-they will root along the stem. Greedy feeder-needs ample amounts of compost or decomposed manure. Needs lots of potassium, phosphorous, but not as much nitrogen. Needs calcium to prevent blossom-end rot; use gypsum or bone meal if necessary. Keep soil most in dry weather with periodic, deep watering and mulch.
