Tomato Pole Pineapple Seeds

Tomato Pole Pineapple Seeds

Solanum lycopersicum var. lycopersicum

Item #0272

90 days from transplanting. Indeterminate.
You’ll be impressed with this stunning, high-yielding variety. These beautiful tomatoes ripen to yellow-orange accented with hints of red that go through the solid, meaty interior of the fruit. Large, beefsteak type fruits don’t have a lot of seeds but are filled with complex, low-acid tomato flavor with a hint of fruitiness that’s just the right balance of sweet and tangy. Provide support for the tall plants and their heavy, 1‒2 pound fruits.

This packet yields approximately 24 plants when started indoors.

When to sow outside: For mild climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting. Transplant when air temperature is 45°F or warmer, usually 1 to 2 weeks after the last average frost date. Ideal soil temperature for germination is 70°‒90°F.

Harvesting: 'Pineapple' tomatoes are at the peak of sun-ripened deliciousness when yellow-orange and have a slight give when gently squeezed. Tomatoes may also be picked at the “first blush” stage, when colors just begin to change, and ripened at room temperature without decreasing flavor or nutrition. Picking often and early increases yield, and decreases the risk of cracking and pest damage. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and undersized fruit off the plant, signaling to the plant to ripen what’s left. Pick any unripe fruit before frost, and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
