Product Description

Bush (determinate). Plants produce heavy yields of small pale pink to red egg-shaped fruit that grow to around 4cm long. Fruit has excellent sweet flavour and are best eaten fresh; ideal for salads. Very popular market variety in Thailand.

As its name implies, Thai Pink Egg tomatoes originate in Thailand where they are valued for their appearance just as much as their sweet, juicy fruit. This dense, bushy tomato plant can grow 5-7 feet (1.5 to 2 m.) tall, oftentimes needing the support of stakes, and produces prolific clusters of grapes to small egg-sized tomatoes. When the fruits are young, they may be a light green to pearl white colour. However, as the tomatoes mature, they turn a pearly pink to light red. In mid to late summer, the prolific display of small pink egg-like tomatoes makes a stunning ornamental display for the landscape.

Not only are Thai Pink Egg tomato plants lovely specimens, but the fruit they produce is described as juicy and sweet. They can be used in salads, as a snacking tomato, roasted or made into a pink to light red tomato paste.

Thai Pink Egg tomatoes should be harvested when fully ripe for best flavour. Unlike other cherry tomatoes, Thai Pink Egg tomatoes do not split open or crack as they mature. The fruit from Thai Pink Egg tomato plants is best when eaten fresh, but the tomatoes do keep very well.
