Another excellent cherry that I've grown for several years now. Fruits are on the larger size (what I call a 'two-bite') and are born in clusters on plants that don't get too tall but are more bushy. The color is hard to explain as they start out looking like they will be red, but then turn more pink and when they are really (over) ripe take on a purple hue.
Super good flavor, meaty and not too many seeds.
HISTORY: Unknown. I received these seeds in a trade and grew them out for a couple of years but for some reason didn't get a photo. They are certainly stable, and are not in my opinion a re-named variety because I've grown 1000's of varieties and this one is certainly unique. It's my thought that this was the creation of a backyard breeder and the history got lost. I did find this information on the Seed Savers Exchange website:
MARTIN LONGSETH 85 days Indet., regular leaf. 6-16 oz pink-red beefsteak. Nice looking tomato. Very good plus flavor. Good yields. From TX AN S 2011 via Darrel Jones, Hamilton, AL. Accidental cross of Red Brandywine and an unknown variety.
BUT, mine consistently produce large cherries.
Sold in a 3.5" pot.
