Beautiful red beefsteaks with excellent classic old-time flavor. They are seemingly disease and drought resistant. I was really impressed with just how many fruits these plants produce - really impressive for such a large beefsteak.


Size of fruits varied throughout the season, with some being 3/4 of a pound to several being well over a pound.


HISTORY: Unknown. I obtained seed via a trade with a person only known to me as "Treecross". She (?) stated this: "This is a huge beefsteak, the largest tomato we grew last year. Unfortunately, I lost the paperwork with the delightful 100 year old story of monks and the monastery this came from when the seeds were originally given to me. Regardless, it was a delightful addition to our community garden and produced large, juicy red beefsteaks to donate to our local food pantry. I did keep the few you see in pictures to enjoy myself and to save seeds for next year. If I ever run across the information hiding somewhere in my stacks of files, I will post in any upcoming auctions of this."

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!


I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.
