I was first introduced to this variety several years back while I was in New York at the Buffalo-Nigara Tomato Tasting Festival which my friend, Remy puts on every year.
'Mexico' won top honors that year as it had the previous two years!
Large (1 lb+) beefsteaks are so dark pink when dead ripe you'd swear they were red. Flesh is the perfect balance of meat and juice and not overly seedy. Flavor is exceptional.
HISTORY: Reportedly brought from Mexico to the United States by a family that was living in the Midwest at the time that seed was sent to Carolyn Male author of Off The Vine. Carolyn later offered the variety in the 1996 Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook.
