Also known as "Black Pineapple," with a distinctive, streaked interior that resembles a tie-dye pattern of pink, red, green and yellow.

One of the earliest maturing tomato varieties at only 55 days, this tomato was developed at the Beaverlodge Research Center in Alberta Canada. The plant is short, compact and determinate, loaded with 2", smooth, red, round tomatoes that contain rich and well balanced flavors. A surprisingly big flavor for such an early tomato. This is a perfect tomato variety for growing in a hanging basket or in a patio container. A good choice for cooler and foggy growing regions like Northern California."
