Too beefy for my taste
If you love beefsteak tomatoes and want heirloom, this is probably the variety for you. Yellow-to-orange flesh, eats like steak and tastes like it too. Indeterminate, so they grow upwards of 8' tall. They need major support or major pruning. The fruits get as large as the description says, 1-2 lb. Due to pruning getting away from me several times and rows too close together, I had to remove whole branches and did lose some fruit. I think we picked 4-5 of these from a 3' row. I just wasn't ready for how fast and large the plants grow. I might have just one plant next year to grow for sharing.
