75 days, indeterminate A very good tasting, meaty, large (13 to 17 ounce), oblate-shaped, pink slicing tomato. An Oregon gardener, Melvin Christensen, was given seeds in 1972 from a co-worker who had received them from friends some years prior. These friends had collected the variety in Turkey while serving in the Peace Corps.
