More sweet, less acidic. Tomatoes weigh up to 2 lbs. each! One slice will cover a sandwich; excellent in salsas. Beefsteak-type fruit is deep golden yellow, and is beautiful in a bowl with other heirlooms. Fruit is abundant on very tall vines, and is deer-resistant. Barnes Mountain Yellow has fewer seeds than most tomatoes, is thin-skinned and easy to peel. Rich, old-time flavor from a great Kentucky heritage. Indeterminate.
