German Pink Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) Indeterminate
This Bavarian variety yields impressive 1–2-pound fruits. Tender-skinned yet crack-resistant, German Pink is great for juicing, canning, and freezing. We love them fresh from the garden and sliced when their sweet, full flavor is at its best. Great with tart, tangy vinaigrettes and freshly snipped herbs.
