Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

I believe the story or history of a seed like Pink Flamingo Tomato is important to share. I got this seed a few years ago from Lisa Von Saunder. She collects endangered seeds from Amish Pennsylvania German families in her area and tries to preserve them. Lisa also gets seeds from her friends in Russia and that is where Pink Flamingo came from. This tomato was handed down to the lady Lisa got the seed from, by her grandmother who still lives in the Ukraine.
Pink Flamingo is as pink as the bird feathers it was named after...well almost...as close as a tomato can get anyway! Pink Flamingo is a rich, meaty tomato that showed absolutely no cracking in our trial gardens. Its flavor is light, clean and the fruit size is about 8 oz. Plants are vigorous and produce excellent yields over an extended period. Great fresh eating tomato and would simmer down to a good sauce I think. This is a very rare tomato and only Lisa's seed company and us have it available this year.
California Grown Heirloom Seed This is another one of those Russian varieties that just performed excellent in our cool coastal Bay Area climate. Vines were vigorous and while we were not over-whelmed at any given time with fruit, Pink Flamingo did provide a steady stream over a long season.
