Product description

The Seed Savers Exchange - Participants in Seed Savers Exchange’s ADAPT trials gave this pink beefsteak tomato top marks! It has a delicious, well-balanced, sweet flavor and moderate acidity. Thin-skinned fruit grows 2-3" long and 3-4" wide, weighs 5-13 ounces, and matures mid-season. J. Orris Murphy received this variety circa 1989 from the Dwayne Bushman family of Council Bluffs, Iowa, and donated it to SSE in the mid- 1990s. The Bushmans had maintained it for more than 100 years. Indeterminate. 67 days from transplant.
