In modern gardening, tomatoes come in all sorts of colours. Black, purple, yellow, orange and classic red, to name a few. The Caspian tomato produces dark pink fruit when ripe. Even the flesh has a pinkish hue. Not only is it a beautiful sight on the plate, but the fruit is juicy, sweet and delicious.

The plant produces fruit that looks like steaks. The fruit can weigh 10 to 12 ounces (up to 340 grams), be oblong, have a flat bottom and thick flesh.

The plants ripen from bottom to top and produce for many weeks. The fleshy fruits are excellent freshly cut or cooked in a sweet sauce. Although not widely available, some online retailers carry seeds of this exceptional tomato variety.

How to grow a pink Caspian tomato

The Caspian Pink tomato plant takes about 80 days to produce ripe fruit, making it essentially a late season variety. Plant the seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date and wait until the soil has warmed up and the seedlings have at least two sets of true leaves before planting them outdoors. In good soil, with average moisture and bright light, germination occurs in 7 to 21 days.

As an indeterminate variety, these plants will need stakes or cages to hold the vine like stems in the soil. Keep the soil moist, especially when flowering and fruiting begins. Feed them weekly for maximum growth and during flowering to increase production.

Indeterminate tomatoes benefit from pruning or pinching when the plants are young. This removes suckers, which do not support but absorb nutrients and water from the bearing stems. Plants 12 to 18 cm (30 to 46 cm) high are ready for pruning. Remove armpit-sucking leaves from older stems that do not have flower buds. This redirects the plant’s energy to the producing stems and helps to increase air circulation and plant vigour.

Another tip for deep roots and strong stems when growing Caspian Pink tomatoes is to eliminate basal growth at planting. You can then bury the plant deeper and roots will form in the underground stem, which will increase absorption and stability.
