Very healthy plants must have some disease resistance. A great tasting large fruited beefsteak that ripens at the same time as Cherokee Purple and produces about the same # of fruit.

The smooth round description below is incorrect. It is a beefsteak that averages about a lb.

Fabulous flavor, meaty, heavy, one of my favorite pink PL types. Late season.
