Pineapple Tomato is a big, juicy yellow beefsteak with a sweet, fruity flavor and flashy red marbling. It has a seductive tomato aroma and sweet fruity aftertaste (yes, something like pineapple). Fabulous in tropical fruit salsa.

The beautiful two pound fruits are impressive enough for a county fair and certainly merit a spot in your garden. 75-95 days.

Keep the mix moist but not soaking wet. Lay some plastic kitchen wrap and a rubber band over pots to keep in heat and moisture.
Place the pots in a warm, sunny spot or on top of a heat mat. (Seeds won't germinate until the soil itself is 75-80 degrees.)
Check pots daily. As soon as you see sprouts, remove the covering and place the pots in a sunny
