BLACK MOUNTAIN PINK
These deep pink, prolific, normally half pound beefsteaks fruits are very meaty, with an excellent sweet flavour. With care the huge pink fruits can grow to over 3 lbs, the very dense flesh being a beautiful deep rose with garnet streaks. This intriguing heirloom from the Black Mountain area in Harlan County, Kentucky, was found at an abandoned homestead in the autumn of 1993. (Cordon)
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
