The indeterminate, regular leaved plants have a whole bunch of ribbed fruits set. The first fruit was harvested 76 days after planting, was about 7 ounces and was thick and had a very small amount of seeds. It looked like a beefsteak, but many of the other fruits look like ribbed paste tomatoes. I think that they are crossed. I'm using different seed next time.
