Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Tlacolula - ripe fruit. 2014-08-21.


Indet., regular leaf plants. Pink ruffled pear-shaped fruits are stunningly beautiful and have excellent sweet flavor. Although the seed cavities are semi-hollow, the flesh is not as dry as Gezahnte tomato, so it is also suited for salads. 4-13 oz. (15 seeds / packet)

Seed source:

Blue Ribbon Tomatoes 09

Year grown: 2014

Location: Zone 7b, PNW, Anmore, BC, Canada (760 ft above sea level)


80 days, indeterminate regular leafed plant. Very similar to Zapotec Pink Pleated, but these are not as hollow, and don not seem to grow as big. My production wasn't awesome this year. One was in too shady a location, the other got planted out very late. Got about 2 lbs. Tasty but mild, and slightly sweet. I love the ribbing on them. Seems to enjoy the heat.

This was one of my favorite tomatoes for flavor in 2016. It wasn't as productive as Zapotec for me; it was earlier than Zapotec; I liked the flavor more than that of Zapotec; otherwise, it was exactly like Zapotec. Fruits matured either at the end of the midseason or the beginning of the late season. Very ribbed; their appearance may surprise people. Pink color. It was hollow inside except for the seed-gel (but due to the shape it would be difficult to stuff). The fruit size was fairly large (about the size of a 1lb non-stuffing tomato). I only got a few tomatoes from one plant. Nevertheless, I plan to grow it again (in 2017) from seeds I saved in 2016. I like it as a slicer, but it's probably more commonly thought of as a stuffing tomato. It probably tastes different in our clay loam soil than in many soils. It was more acidic than most of the tomatoes I grew in 2016.
