History

  • The original seed came from the late Mr. Lacy Eugene Hege Jr. of Welcome, NC. Mr. Hege sold the seedlings and fruits of this tomato at the Farmer's Markets in several locations near his home in Welcome, NC over the years. Reportedly he acquired the 'German Pink' from an elderly gentleman who grew for market many years ago. Mr. Hege passed away in May 2008, at the age of 86.
  • Craig LeHoullier says he "got them last spring from Ron Simmons of Walnut Cove, NC. The packet says 'Hege, Davidson County, German Pink' (Hege is underlined)."
  • First introduced in Seed Savers 2009 Yearbook by Susan Anderson of Bastrop, Texas (TX AN A) and Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois (IL LO N).
