Anyone tried this? I'm going to give it a shot this summer. Supposed to be mild, less acidic flavor, so maybe my DH will like it better than he usually likes tomatoes.

It is a large pink Beefsteak that does better than most of that type here. In general they are sweeter and meatier that the round types. Prudens Purple is earlier and more prolific but taste is similar.

I've grown both. They're both nice. I have to agree with Farmerdill and give the nod to Pruden's Purple though. It takes a likkin' with hot humid temps and keeps producing faithfully. (Mom, who is 80 prefers the taste as well)
