Grew this one in the 80's in the New River valley. Excellent yields of smooth medium size round pink fruits. Both pretty and tasty.

A long time favorite in my area. Pink Girl produces extremely well up until frost.

Fruit is large (8 oz average) and juicy, smooth and highly crack resistant.

Pink Girl is new to me in my garden this year. I had never heard of it until I saw plants at Home Depot this spring and bought one on impulse because it is a pink tomato. Not only pink, but a great producing variety that has been setting lots and lots of lovely medium-sized fruit. I just love the taste. Every once in a while, trying a new variety results in a new favorite. In this case I plan to plant multiple plants of Pink Girl each year from now on.

I had grown Pink Girl in the past and found the fruits to be attractive in their subtle pink skin color. They are average in size for me, usually 4 inches in diameter and weighing up to 10 to 11 ounces: Just right for salads or eating right off the vine! This year I bought two plants at a local nursery and added them to my tomato patch. They have done well in spite of adverse weather including nearly continuous rainfall in June and July. They make a good snack any time, especially chilled.
