Heirloom, Non-GMO Thai Pink Egg Tomato Seed Growth Habits:
Pink Thai Egg tomato seeds are a good choice for growing in raised beds, containers, and small gardens because of their determinate growth habit.
Like most tomatoes, Thai Pink Egg tomatoes grow well in slightly acidic to neutral soil that drains well, and they prefer abundant sunshine and regular watering. Consistently moist soil is especially important for preventing both blossom end rot and cracking.
Thai Pink Egg tomato plants produce rosy-pink 1-oz. fruits that are oval or egg-shaped.
All tomatoes are sensitive to frost, so in most USDA hardiness zones, they should be started indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date. After hardening off the seedlings, you can then transplant them into the garden, raised bed, or large container. Tomato plants should be transplanted when nighttime temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees F.
Various Uses for Thai Pink Egg Heirloom Tomatoes:
Typically eaten fresh, Thai Pink Egg tomatoes are a delicious addition to green salads, pasta salads, and caprese salads. They make a good snack eaten fresh off the vine, too, thanks to their slightly sweet flavor.
Heirloom Pink Thai Egg Tomato Benefits:
Heirloom Thai Pink Egg tomatoes are a mouth-watering and healthy food thanks to high levels of vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin K. They are also a good source of lycopene, an antioxidant that is good for the heart.
Thai Pink Egg tomatoes are originally from Thailand and are an open-pollinated variety of grape tomato. While technically a perennial plant, tomatoes are widely grown as an annual crop during the frost-free growing seasons in all USDA hardiness zones.
