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

Ponderosa Pink Tomato Seed
Ponderosa Pink Tomato Seed (86 days)
Approx. 25 heirloom tomato seeds
Indeterminate tomato vines
More properly known as Henderson's Ponderosa. This tomato was first released by the Peter Henderson Seed Company in 1891.
This is what the 1896 seed catalog says about Henderson's Ponderosa Tomato..."The vines are strong and vigorous and esily carry their enoumous weight of fruit. Its massive ponderous fruits are almost perfect in form, and when we come to size, weight and solidity, no other tomato begins to approach it. The color, a rich crimson permeates the from circumference to center, so that when sliced for the table its rare beauty never fials to elict general admiration. It is almost seedless. It is very early for a large tomato. The flavor is delicious, whether used raw or cooked."
