|Food Buzz: History of Tomatoes|
Pineapple tomatoes have a huge body with golden-orange and red marbled skin. They show the same beautiful coloration on their interior flesh, which has a strong tomato aroma and boasts low acidity and few seeds with more solid, meaty flesh. This variety has an incredibly unique flavor as it is primarily sweet, but with a satisfying, and even surprising, citrus tang. Pineapple tomato plants bear heavy yields of fruit with individual tomatoes weighing between one and two pounds. As an indeterminate variety, Pineapple tomato plants will continue to grow and set fruit up until a frost. Pineapple is among the taller of tomato plants, often reaching eight or more feet high, hence staking or caging these plants is recommended in order to encourage healthy growth and to prevent garden sprawl.

Enjoy fresh to savor the fantastic flavor! Perfect choice for fresh mixed green salads. Because the heirloom tomato is quite costly, it is a shame to hide its exceptionally tasty virtues in sauces or soups. Slice for enhancing hamburgers and sandwiches. Pair with other heirloom varieties for an outstanding presentation of color and flavor. Accent its flavor even more with basil and extra virgin olive oil. Ideal fresh edible garnish for savory creations. To store, never refrigerate tomatoes as chilling diminishes a tomato's flavor.
