A productive heirloom beefsteak tomato of German origin that was brought into circulation by Rick Burkhart of Indiana whose family has raised it for 25 years. Big, indeterminate, vigorous, potato-leaf tomato plants that yield abundant crops of 1-pound, deep-pink, juicy tomatoes with little cracking. Considered among the best heirloom tomatoes. Excellent tomato in salads and on sandwiches. Aunt Ginny’s Purple is an American favorite tomato.
