B.C KO T

Indet., regular leaf, medium-large bi-colored beefsteaks with yellow color at the bottom gradually turning into peach-orange on the top, some red streaking inside. The plants did not do very well in this cool 2008 season, and I did not have a chance to observe the productivity. The first fruits were very ribbed, but later fruit may have been smoother if it had a chance to set, which they did not, as we had very unusual weather jumping from very hot to very cool very quickly. Very good taste for a bi-color, lots of tasty juice. Beautiful slices.
