The Seed Savers Exchange - The delicious, dark-orange flesh of this large beefsteak tomato has a great balance of sweetness and acidity. Juicy fruits mature mid-season, weigh half to full pound, and measure 3-4.5" wide. Tall, indeterminate plants grow 5-6' tall and bear fruit singly or in a cluster of 1-3. Betty Moore of Stow, Ohio, has stewarded this variety since 1983 when she received it from her mother, Oma Rachel Lively Miller, who was given the variety from a relative circa 1937 when she married. 75-80 days from transplant. Organic.
