The dark pink fruit, occasionally showing yellow shoulders, has deep red flesh and can weigh 1 pound or more. It’s one of the earliest maturing beefsteak tomatoes, and the fruits are well-shaped, meaty, with thick walls, and little or no cracking. A tomato that’s great both for slicing or canning. Be sure to use sturdy stakes for these vigorous, productive, potato leaf vines. Indeterminate, 80 days from transplant. Packet contains at least 30 seeds.
