Ananas Noire Tomato
Ananas Noire or Black Pineapple, originated from Belgium when a unique fruit emerged from a Pineapple Tomato patch after naturally crossing with an unknown variety. Ananas Noire was then developed and stabilized by Belgian horticulturist, Pascal Moreau and released to market in 2005.
Ananas Noire is described as a beautiful, tricolored, black beefsteak that has show-stopping colors of olive green, soft yellows, deep pinks and mauves with a marbled green and red streaked flesh.
The fruits grow on vigorous, indeterminate vines that produce incredibly abundant yields of large, 1-2 pound fruits, mid to late season. For the taste profile, this tomato hits every note; rich, smoky, sweet and tropical with a touch of citrus and a robust acidic finish. The fruit is meaty and juicy with a luscious, creamy and smooth texture and contains very few seeds. I have been growing this variety since 2012 and while they have a softer texture, they have done fantastic at market.
