This large dark yellow beefsteak was one of the favorite slicing tomatoes of my youth. In fact it was about the only large yellow beefsteak readily available. IT is a much smoother tomato than the Purple Ponderosa and just as prolific. Smaller vine and earlier season than most beefsteaks. Great Flavor.
