This is a winner. Very large meaty and tasty variety. Produced well in containers.
My new favorite!
by Mike K
By far, one of the most tasty, silky, dense tomato's I've grown here in Oregon. I will definitely grow many more next year! Very impressed!
Pink German is the best tasting tomato I ever grown! SSE own favorite variety, I got it this year, I grow all my tomatoes from seeds and have my own varieties. But this is so far best tasting superior tomato! Perfect germination and very strong plants, very happy and highly recommend this tomato to everyone.
by Lazy M Farm
by far the best tomato we have ever raised.
This is the best germination tomato that a I have ever had. 100% germination and I can hardly wait to see how they grow in the rain forest of Washington State.

Love this tomato. Lots of big tomatoes on vine. Will grow again.
living in Alaska, this was a short growing season due to a late spring. had to take all the tomatoes because of the night temperatures and now I am in the process of getting them ready for indoor ripening. I've never had any luck growing tomatoes in the greenhouse but this is a variety I will plant again next year. Only two with any signs of rot out of about 50 or more.
