Both productive and flavorful, this moderately sweet tomato variety earned top marks for taste from Seed Savers Exchange staff. Fruits are pink, slightly oblong, and borne in bunches of three to six. Popular on the Exchange, where it has been listed for more than 30 years, ‘Pearly Pink Cherry’ was given to Seed Savers Exchange by member Mrs. Echo Larson, who obtained it in 1980 from Mildred Kotar of Pineville, Louisiana. Fruits average 1.5" in length and 1" in diameter, and weigh 1 ounce. Indeterminate. 70-80 days from transplant.
