Default Pineapple Pig

Wild Boar Farms lists this variety - but it's sold out, and there's no photo or description yet. I wonder what this one is like - anyone know?

I'm going to venture a guess. Only a guess. Yellow bicolor with stripes. Possibly furry. Probably Pork Chop gone bicolor, in other words. But just a guess. Same question's been asked at other forums, and Facebook, without an answer yet.

A few weeks ago I ordered some of the Pineapple Pig seed
Just before Brad sold out. I saw it on his site and curiosity got
The best of me so I gave in and ordered some.
Maybe Brad will post some pictures soon.

Announcing the release of "Pineapple Pig", after five (5) years of selection this new Wild Boar Variety is now out. Large, meaty, lightly striped from Beauty King cross. Large plant, large fruit, fairly late, worth the wait. Light yellow with red blush meaty flesh. Has great taste, more of a Chardonnay then Cabernet with fruity hints.

If it's anything like Beauty King, it should be gorgeous. That is one of the best looking striped tomatoes IMHO. My Husband says that Beauty King also has a robust flavor for a bi-color/striped. This Pig Might be a very good looking rascal!
