“Norcarlina Pink” yields the most delicious pink beefsteaks on a very vigorous, potato leaf plant. The fruits are sweet and stay pleasingly firm (not mushy) even when the fruits are fully ripe at deep rosy pink. The first few fruits for my plants both in the ground and in the pot were large, around a pound, and the remaining fruits were between 6-12 ounces, with the smaller fruits on the plant in the pickle bucket pot.
There seemed to be a bit of mystery regarding the name, as I have seen it called “Norcarolina Pink” and “North Carolina Pink. I found a conversation on a popular gardening forum by a member going by “John4,” who received seeds from a gentleman in North Carolina who bought the tomato at a farmers’ market and saved seeds. John4 named the tomato he grew from these seeds “Norcarlina Pink,” and shared his saved seeds with friends. Apparently there is also a Norcarlina Gold with a similar history. John4 stated that he would like for people to know and use the true name he gave to this variety, “Norcarlina,” and not “Norcarolina.”
I will be growing this again, as it did very well for me and tastes quite sweet and balanced.
