Large vines need caging or staking, 64 days, large 12-16 oz. round to slightly flattened dark pink fruit with rich, mildly sweet flavor, well worth growing. It did exceptionally well in the relatively cool wet conditions experienced here in the 2008 growing season.

The huge plants took sixty-two days to make a ripe fruit. They are indeterminate plants with regular leaves and are very hardy, lasting and making fruit till the last frost. The beautiful rose colored fruits are sweet and juicy and usually exceed one pound, my biggest one was two and a quarter pounds. This was my first beefsteak to ripen in last year's bad summer and is a good choice for anyone in a less-then-ideal climate.
