The pineapple tomato is an heirloom variety that takes more than 100 days to mature. Each fruit can grow to be several pounds in weight and often has large, odd shaped lobes. In addition, they have skins so fragile that transporting them over long distances isn't an option. So why bother growing them? The flavor is sublime, slightly sweet and really does hint at pineapple. If you're the type of person who doesn't like tomatoes because of their acidic taste, you should try these. A local farmer's market is your best bet. Or better yet, make plans now for growing some in your own garden next season.
