A beautiful tomato, yellow/green on top fades into pink. Very refreshing flavor, nice beefsteak. Produces higher yield then Brandywine, this is a mid-season in northern Indiana. My earliest heirloom to ripen last year. We love it in salsas and pico. Not a lot of gel/seed pockets. In my top 5; last year was a bad tomato year, and this was my best harvest. You must try it.

Soldacki is a good tasting pink tomato that produces mid-late season. Yield is fairly high, and I didn't have too many problems with disease.
