Commercially introduced by us

Phonetically pronounced: ha-fee-zeh ball-itch

Hafize Baliç Pink was named after the seed’s steward Hafize Baliç, who grew it for over 50 years in her home garden in Çerkezköy, Tekirdağ, until she passed away in March 2008. Baliç had migrated with her family from the Balkans to Turkey in early 1900’s. Many pink tomatoes that have been grown in Western and Northwestern Turkey are known to have been brought by the Turks and other ethnic groups migrated from the Balkans when they escaped war and conflict.  

When we grew this seed, fruits’ rich, complex flavor as well as think skin and juicy flesh stood out in our taste evaluations. Hafize Baliç Pink is also one of the most prolific pink tomatoes we have ever grown. Fruit color is a stunning dark pink which almost looks purple. One of the best fresh-eating tomatoes we can recommend. This is one of the best documented heirloom seeds of Turkey, and it is a staple variety in our catalog. 

Packet has 15 seeds

    What can I say except these are another really good Turkish tomato. I have found all the seeds I have purchased from Two Seeds in a Pod to produce excellently in my arid New Mexico climate.

    I have grown three of the pink tomatoes for several years now – Sugören Pembesi, Haifize Balic, and Turkey tomato. They have all done well at my community garden in Cleveland Ohio, and my family looks forward to them every season. In my opinion, these are the perfect sandwich and salad tomato – I made a panzanella from them, and it really was one of the best things I ate that summer. The texture is fine-grained, and the balance of flavor is gorgeous. The taste is a little more delicate than a “normal” red tomato, but still so flavorful. I think if you amend your soil and give these plenty of sun, they’ll do well. Even in poor conditions at my garden I get some beautiful maters from these.
