These grew very well from seed started indoors this year. The fruits are nice and large, and I had little to no cracking. I staked them well since the fruits are so heavy. There were 3 that had cracked on the bottom from the get-go but I discarded them when I saw them so as not to make the plant put its energy into those fruits but into the nice ones instead

80-90 days, 10-20 oz deep yellow beefsteaks. Good to very good flavor for a yellow. From Mrs. Yoder, older Amish woman, grown in her family for over 50 years.
