This old standby rewards me with 1 lb.+ juicy red beefsteaks year after year without fail. Originally hybridized by Harris Seeds many years ago and quite superior in taste to Big Beef and Better Boy.

This regular-leaved indeterminate will need caging to support the very large yield of fruit it bears. If you are looking for that "classic" true tomato taste, you can't go wrong with this one.
