Another one of Brad Gates' (Wild Boar Farms) varieties. Flattened med to med-large beefsteak with great flavor. Pinkish-brown with metallic forest green stripes on the exterior. Interior flesh is dark. One of the more popular varieties for both taste and looks at the 2007 SETTFest (South East Texas Tomato Fest).
