The tomato originated in Central America, where it was cultivated by the Aztecs. When the Spanish invaded Central and South America, they seized upon the exotic fruit and sent it back to Europe. Southern Europe began using the fruit in their cuisines while northern Europe feared the tomato and believed it to be poisonous. While the Pineapple tomato has an unknown parentage, it is believed to have originated in Kentucky, along with other bi-coloured tomatoes.
Heirloom Yellow Pineapple tomatoes have a huge body with golden-orange and red marbled skin. They show the same colouration on their interior flesh. It has a strong tomato aroma and boasts low acidity and few seeds with more solid, meaty flesh. This variety has an incredibly unique flavour as it is primarily sweet, but with a satisfying, and even surprising, citrus tang.
The unique colouring and sweet flavour of this tomato makes it perfect for raw preparations. Use them as a colourful addition to fresh greens, layered in a salad, or paired with fresh basil, mozzarella and balsamic for a traditional caprese salad.
Place tomatoes in the fridge when ripe. These tomatoes will keep for a few days.
