You'll be impressed with this high-yielding variety. These luscious tomatoes ripen to yellow-orange accented with hints of red that go through the solid, meaty interior of the fruit. Large, beefsteak type fruits don't have a lot of seeds but are filled with complex, low-acid tomato flavor with a hint of fruitiness that's just the right balance of sweet and tangy. Provide support for the tall plants and their heavy, 1–2-pound fruits.
