Hawaiian Pineapple tomato is a bi-color heirloom beefsteak style tomato. It has an orange - yellow -red mottled skin and flesh. The plant produces average one pound fruits sometimes a tad smaller some a bit larger.

I find this tomato best when eaten fresh in salads or straight off the vine. Some folks say they taste pineapple, personally i did, but not as strongly as anticipated - it tasted more like a standard beefsteak with only a very slight hint of pineapple. Of course there are multiple variables that effect flavor.

Allowing it over-ripen slightly would allow more sugars to concentrate in the fruit and hence enhance the flavor. It's certainly worth growing again and I plan to do so next season.
