Anna Russian $3.50
A beautiful heart-shaped pink tomato, on a somewhat delicate plant, but Very delicious and flavorful. Productive too.
The old Amish favorite from 1885. Brandywine is a cushion shaped pink beefsteak with a rich, delicious flavor and fine skin. A potato leaf variety.
Cherokee Purple $3.50
A popular dark pink/purple variety much like Purple Perfect. It has the same beautiful smooth skin and tender texture. It’s another good option that’s worth a try. Best grown in the greenhouse here.
Gregori’s Altai $3.50
A large strong and sturdy plant that produces a large pink beefsteak tomato with very good flavor and texture. Fairly early. From the Altai mountains of Siberia. This one is not often seen, but worth a try. First to ripen in the greenhouse last summer.
I have been growing this version of “Ispolin” -meaning “Giant”, since about 1994. It is a flatish pink beefsteak type, that performs very well in our climate. Very delicious and productive Despite the controversy of which is the original Russian Ispolin, the Red or the Pink, this one works well for me!

Prudens Purple is often compared to Brandywine. It is a similar dark pink, potatoleaf variety. Very good flavor, and very beautiful.
