asaylor hit the nail on the head with his comments on Ashleigh. I grew mine in a 7 gal. container and it just pumped out 1-2 pound beauties. My seed source was Neil Gilliard. Thanks Neil for bringing us such a wonderful tomato. Ami

One of the best tomatoes I have ever grown!
Ashleigh is a very meaty, yet juicy, red beefsteak tomato that grows 1-2 pounds. It has very few seed cavities (great for sandwiches, bad for seed-saving!) Because of its meatiness, I bet you could use it as a paste tomato. Mine never lasted long enough to find out---they were eaten as soon as I brought them indoors! The taste is explosive, and like no other tomato I have ever tasted. I could probably identify it blind-folded! We have Neil Gilliard of Canada to thank for this delicious variety.
