Black Pineapple, or Ananas Noire Tomato

Ananas Noire Tomato

The Ananas Noire tomato is also known as the Black Pineapple Tomato. This is a new trial for my 2010 garden.

From the vendor: 85 days; indeterminate. 1.5 pound tomatoes are shades of green, purple, orange and yellow. Bright green flesh with red streaks. Lip smacking flavor starts sweet and ends with tang. “Yields a tremendous amount of fruits”.

2010 UPDATE:

I was able to pick my first tomato off of this trial plant last week. Like other beefsteaks, it’s not proving to be a heavy producer. The top of the tomato stayed green, with the bottom turning purplish-brown-red. I chose to can it, but I don’t think the coloration will be appetizing when I pull it down to cook in the coming winter – the flesh is kind of brown-looking. After two tomatoes, they are averaging only 8 oz – much smaller than the 1.5 lbs the vendor has reported.
