Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Heatherington Pink - sliced fruit. 2015-08-12.

B.C KO T

Indet., regular leaf, high yield of large pink beefsteaks, 7-21 oz, some fruits have irregular shapes, but majority of fruits are very nice blemish-free oblate globes, with outstanding sweet flavor. Fruits are very juicy and have smooth texture, this tomato is excellent fresh in salads, and high yielding. This variety deserves more attention from tomato growers, it is so good!

MI FL J

large vines need caging or staking, 66 days, medium to large (mostly 6-12 oz. for me) oblate pink globes (but an occasional irregular shape), sometimes with yellow shoulders, with good flavor that was probably suppressed given the mostly cool wet conditions for my 2008 garden.
