Ted's Pink Currant Certified Naturally Grown Seed
(Solanum pimpinellifolium)
76 days, indeterminate — Although red-colored currant tomatoes have been available for many years, pink-fruited currants are fairly rare. 'Ted's Pink' currant abundantly supplies fruits that are about one-half inch in diameter, sweet and mild, that are a beautiful pink color.

In general, currant tomatoes are very productive, very hardy, start producing early and continue until freezing temperatures arrive in the fall.  They have a sprawling growth habit that is not easily tamed by tomato baskets nor by using the Florida weave method.  Either leave them to their wild, rambling habit, or allow them to climb a lattice of livestock panel.

We received 'Ted's Pink' currant from Dr. Carolyn Male.  She received seed from Ted Darnowski of Florida and introduced it to seed savers in 2013. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Note:  Although these are a different species from garden tomatoes, they will readily cross with other tomatoes. If you are saving seed, isolate these plants.

Love these!
I love these fruit! I direct seeded these outside in the spring, and they grew perfectly. We got the first ripe fruit about two weeks ago. They are so sweet, and practically explode in your mouth. Plus, they are so prolific! I only planted two plants, but in the last two days I got nearly a pint of tomatoes. I use them in salad or stir fries, or just eat them as a snack.

VSC NOTES: Thank you for the review, Amber. It is one of my favorite small fruited tomato varieties as well. I just want to point out to folks that although Amber had success direct sowing her tomato seeds, this is not the recommended practice. More often than not it will result in failure. In most locations, tomato seeds should be started indoors where conditions can be closely controlled and monitored. ~Mike
