Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Also called Mikado, this unusual raspberry-pink tomato with potato-leaf leaves was first released in 1886 by Philadelphia seedsman W. Atlee Burpee. The 6-inch diameter fruit often weighs over 12 ounces and is best grown as a slicing tomato.  Since the fruits are heavy, plants require sturdy staking. 25 seeds
