I grew it once. Produced very nice looking fruit, average flavour, mild enough for anybody to take. But fruit stayed very firm, a good quality for commercial production, but not so much for a home garden.

This was my first summer ever to grow Pink Girl, and then it was only one test plant. I was surprised at the large size of 8-10 oz. fruits, and their firm juicy texture. The taste is mild with not too much acidity, but just enough to put a little zest into a salad, or spice up a home grilled burger. I will grow it again.

For a commercial tomato, Pink Girl is surprisingly tasty. I was quite surprised at the flavor and depth of it.

They ripen fully, with no green shoulders and are meaty with a nice texture.

I can't give it the 'ultimate roll your eyes back in your head' tomato rating , but it is a wonderful 'table tomato' that is reliable, tasty, and pretty.

I give it an A-

Great tasting with medium thickness flesh, color can vary from a more traditional pink to scarlet. Vigorous plant, but prone to attract insects when compared to other varieties. The plant is very hardy. A couple hornworms completely defoliated a plant one night and the plant came back full and still produced great fruit.

A 1984 home garden pink. It has resistance to verticillium wilt race 1, fusarium wilt race 1, gray leaf spot,and alternaria stem canker. I grew Pink Girl in the late 80's in the New River Valley, It was a prolific producer of 1/2 lb light pink tomatoes. Taste and texture is good.
