Product description

The Seed Savers Exchange - Considered one of the best-tasting tomatoes by Seed Savers Exchange staff, this variety offers complex and well-balanced flavor. The impressively large pink beefsteak tomatoes have large lobes and deep ribbing. Some fruits may have moderate cracking, but they are remarkably blemish-free with respect to their size—a whopping 1½-2 pounds and nearly 5-6" in width. Edley Bellamy of Virginia donated this seed to SSE; Bellamy received the variety from Oscar Gibson in 1993. 70-80 days. Indeterminate.
