Large (1/2 to 1 lb) meaty red beefsteaks that wowed the heck out of me in 2022. Grown in probably the worse section of the garden(s), it just kept chugging along.

 

Surprisingly, its growth habit is much shorter (under 5 foot) than would be expected for the size and amount of fruits it produced. It's also worth noting that towards the end of the summer, I had a whitefly infestation that took out most of the plants in that area but Ashleigh was unaffected.

 

HISTORY: Orignally from the village of Lazec, Macedonia, it was introduced to the U.S., via SSE Member, Neil Gillard (ONT GI N) of Ontario, Canada. He received the seeds from his friends at Wilber Lake, near Eganville Ontario. Mr. Gillard named the variety after his niece.

 

Sold in a 3.5" pot.
