Alpha Pink is a historically important variety that dates back to 1914. It was introduced by the Isbell Seed Company. The catalog description from 1914 says:
“The earliest pink in cultivation. As early as Spark’s Earliana. Out yields all others.” Relatively compact indeterminate, regular leaf plants are only up to 4-5′ tall. Fruits are smooth, pink, round and oblate medium beefsteaks, 4-6 oz, meaty and juicy, very good balanced flavor. Very productive. Quite early for a large fruited tomato.
