Description
June Pink Certified Naturally Grown Seed

83 days, indeterminate — 'June Pink' has vigorous, productive, regular leaf vines that produce fruits that are pink in color, smooth skinned, flattened-globe to oblate in shape, and weigh up to one pound each.

Introduced by Johnson & Stokes in 1906. In their seed catalog that year they wrote:
"The June Pink Tomato in habit of growth is similar to the Earliana. The plant is neat and compact, branching freely, with fruit hanging in clusters of six to ten fruits both in the crown and at the forks of the branches. Under exactly the same conditions as given Sparks' Earliana and Chalk's Jewel, the June Pink yielded as much fruit as either, and the vines after the crop had been harvested were greener and brighter, and showed no tendency to blight. It ripens fully as early as the Sparks' Earliana and quite ten days to two weeks ahead of Chalk's Early Jewel.

The fruit is of medium size, uniform, smooth, and attractively shaped, without cracks or any green core. The fruit will average 2-3/4 to 3 inches in diameter, and from 2 to 2-1/2 inches in depth. The skin is reasonably tough so that it is excellent for shipping purposes.

In color, it is a bright pleasing pink, and in markets where a pink tomato is desired will bring 25 per cent, more in price than any red variety. It has the further quality, making it especially desirable for private use, of continuing to bear and ripen fruit up until frost.

In offering the June Pink Tomato, we do so with every confidence that it will at once take the unique position in pink varieties which the
Earliana now holds over the whole country in the red sorts."[2]
Our seed is grown out from USDA accession number PI 270194. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
