- Indet., regular leaf, moderate to high yield of huge flattened pink beefsteaks, 18-24 oz, 6" in diameter. Early fruits had some semi-hollow seed cavities, later fruits were much better. The flavor is good but a bit too mild for me, I like more 'sharp' tasting beefsteaks.

- Lebanese heirloom, introduced in 1996 by Carolyn Male of Salem, New York.
- Dr Carolyn Male obtained the seed from her colleague Omar Saab, who came to the US from Lebanon. Omar's family in Lebanon had a summer home in the hills of Lebanon where they grew this huge pink tomato. Omar knew about Carolyn's love for family heirlooms, and when he visited his family he brought some seeds of this tomato back to the USA and shared with Carolyn.
- Carolyn named this tomato 'Omar's Lebanese' to reflect both the seed source and the country of origin.
