Outrageously good flavor! My favorite cultivar so far and I've easily grown a good 40-50 different varieties. Beautiful large multicolored fruit that makes a handsome addition to salads (or anything else, really). I adore this variety and was so pleased to find it again this year - this one gets a permanent spot in the garden for sure!

Informational comment, I've not grown this variety.

'Hawaiian Pineapple' is not a a true bicolor, and is commonly confused with 'Pineapple', which has a separate entry in PlantFiles.

These vines and fruit have been very good performers in the S Fla winter growing season. The size of the fruit is 12-24 oz and their flesh is gold streaked with red. A sweet tasting tomato to me and very good mixed with other tomatos in a salad. They do not last very long once ripe.

I was expecting a bland flavor from this pale tomato but it was acidic and tasty. When sliced the flesh was smooth and meaty and was reminiscent of a pineapple in appearance. My plant was not very productive however.
