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
“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.
