High production and rampant vines are characteristics of Steakhouse. They are a large cherry type tomato that isn't quite as sweet as some of it's hybrid cousins.They produce tons of red fruits for weeks on end.

Not as bad to split as other cherries when it rains,but some splitting still occurs.I like the flavor and the production is consistant enough to grow it for farmer's market or restaurant use.One of my favorite red cherry tomatoes.
