Pink Girl Tomato is a hybrid, indeterminate tomato variety that produces beautiful, pink-colored fruits. Because it has an indeterminate growth habit, it will produce throughout the entire warm growing season in moderate climates. Pink Girl has a solid disease-resistance package including resistance to gray leaf spot.
Pink Girl Tomato has vigorous vines that produce pink fruits averaging 8 ounces each. Fruits are resistant to cracking and absolutely beautiful when allowed to reach full ripeness on the vine. Because the fruits are pink, they have a lower acidity than traditional red tomato varieties.
Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.
If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
