The Letter “A” for the Ananis Noir Tomato and Alaku Sarga Szentes Pepper

The name of this tomato is French for black pineapple. It arose out of a planting of the Pineapple tomato in a Belgian garden.


The fruit ranges from very large, as you can see in the picture, to medium. The color and flavor are totally different than that of it’s parent. The exterior is dark purple and green with pink-red splotches and a touch of yellow, while the inside is bright green streaked with pink. The hues bleed into one another reminding me of a piece of tie-dyed fabric. Not only is it pretty but the flavor is outstanding, sweet yet rich and delicious. These are arge plants and should be staked.. They are sure to wow your friends and neighbors. I would consider this a main season tomato.


Alaku Sarga Szentes – Sweet Pepper

I am growing this pepper for the first time. I saw it in the Baker Creek Seed catalog and since I love pretty colors and unusual shapes, I chose to offer it this year. From my website:

“This is a spectacular pepper from Hungary.  Pumpkin-shaped fruits are 3-4 inches in diameter, and are flattened and deeply ribbed, looking like little wheels of cheese. This pepper has sweet, incredibly thick walls that stay crisp. The compact, productive plants are loaded with bright yellow-orange fruits.

This rare variety was collected at a farmers’ market in Matrafured, Hungary, but deveoped in Szentes, Hungary.”

Try stuffing these with chicken salad or baking them with a hamburger, cheese, and rice stuffing.

Alaku Sarga Szentes – What a lovely little pepper!

  1. Man, you are the vege lady. My daughter and I managed a cucumber in our new patch this year, but have high hopes…

    Dropping by from A-Z.

    • If one were to judge all tomatoes by the ones you get in the store, it’s no wonder there are people out there who don’t like tomatoes. There is nothing like a homegrown tomato, warm from the sun, juicy and sweet. Even when you grow your own, their are some that are better than others.

    • I am not reviewing because there was so mnay to choose from in the “B”‘s. However, out of all the colors of brandywine, my favorite is the red. It’s prolific and actually produces tomatoes for me, unlike the pink. I also like the black krim even though it isn’t super prolific. Some tomatoes are worth the real estate for their flavor. You can check out all these tomatoes on my website.

    • I’ve met a lot of folks who say that if a tomato isn’t red, it isn’t a tomato. theya re missing out on a lot of good and different flavors. This is one of our favorites,not only for it’s looks but also for it’s taste. Tomatoes don’t stay long in my garden if they don’t taste good!
