  • Introduced by Gary Ibsen, the owner of TomatoFest , a result of crossed pink heirloom beefsteak.
  • Gary says that the seed was sent to him "from a seed company that had sourced seeds from USDA." He expected to see a pink beefsteak but got a large striped bi-color beefsteak, which he liked very much for its yields and performance in his 2 trials, as well as juiciness and tropical fruity flavors.
  • Not related to Serendipity tomato that was developed by Millard Murdock of East Flat Rock, North Carolina.
