Gardeners' Notes:

I was able to find starts for this plant one time at the local Farmers Grange Co-op. Plants did not develop fungus or rot and grew well.They produced an average number of large smooth, excellent flavored tomatoes around 1 pound each. They did not have the customary wrinkles and gnarled appearance of other Beef Steaks. The second year, I bought them, but they were just plain old wrinkled gnarled beefsteaks. I think the supplier saved his own seeds that had crossed, or subtituted another tomato.
