indet., potato leaf plants, medium yield of pink beefsteaks with green shoulders, most fruits are in the 8-11 oz range, but a few were only 4 oz. The flavor is both smoky and sweet, but different from both Cherokee Purple and Brandywine, the texture is firm and juicy, with few small seed cavities and not many seeds. Excellent in salads and sandwiches. One of the first large fruited tomatoes to ripen in my 2009 garden, just a few days after Cherokee Purple and Dora.

Maybe the best part is that this one has retained the taste of its Brandywine parent. Purplish color to skin and flesh and great complex flavor make it a must for your collection of varieties. Indet, potato leaf, oblate 8-12 oz round beefsteak fruit. Mid-season, 75 days.
