PWB stands for "Prize Winning Bi-color".
Ridiculous amounts of consistently 1lb +, flawless yellow bicolored beefsteaks. Exceptionally full flavored, disease resistant and fuss-free. This is a must grow!
HISTORY: In January of 2016 I attended a seed swap at the Downtown Home & Garden Center in Ann Arbor, MI. The Ann Arbor Club was there, trading and passing out seeds. This one caught my eye, so I took a package and grew a few plants out later that spring. I was truly caught off guard. Two of the plants produced massive amounts of 1 + lb fruits, consistently all summer. The third one produced an egg-shaped red saladette with incredible flavor. I actually coined it "PWC" for Prize Winning Cherry. Sadly, I was not able to find this again with further grow outs from saved seed.
I did, however, continue to grow out PWB because it was obvious that it was still segregating. This past year (2019), all plants came out typical and including plants that I sent down to my friend Mike Washburn, Garden Manager at the infamous Blackberry Farm. In fact, sometime in late August I got a text from him that read, "I need to know all about this PWB!!!!" Later he told me that his chefs loved it!
PWB was 'found' by a member of the Ann Arbor Garden club in a package of seed from a Seed Savers Exchange member in a package of seed labeled "Gilogly Pink". Obviously a beecross, it later won acclaim at the 2007 Ann Arbor Tomato Tasting.
