As an update on the Texas Pink tomato, the grower told me that the woman he acquired the seeds from was named "Rochelle" (sp?) and she was from Texas, and she had been growing Texas Pink in the Atrisco area for the past 30 years.

Here is a side-by-side comparison between Texas Pink and Eva Purple Ball. The white mottling on my EPB is not as substantial as it is on the TP, but that could possibly be attributed to growing conditions. My EPB are in the small range (2.5 oz avg) while the TP average 4.4 oz., the larger one weighing 5 3/4 oz. They are quite similar. I won't present any conclusions because I am far from expert in such matters.
