Pink beefsteaks averaging just under a pound are very productive and for such a large tomato, they come on early, too.
Above average, classic homegrown flavor that your taste buds long for from summer tomatoes.
Perfect for burgers, or slicing.
HISTORY: Randy Sine of West Virginia, who is a tomato aficionado and excellent backyard breeder, introduced this tomato to the 'world', via Seed Savers Exchange. The following are his words: "My friend Tom Edwards got this when he worked on a summer job for plummers. They were of Irish descent and had this tomato from their grandfather. Tom is in his late 60s and he got the tomato as a teenager so it's been around for a while. It's a PL pink beefsteak with thin skinned blemish free fruit. The fruit averages about 12 oz. You know how sometimes you might want something a little different. Well, that's what this one is. I guess the tomato tasters at work like something different because it came in 4th last year."
