Depp’s Pink Firefly

A family heirloom from Kentucky, named after Emily Depp Coy, whose family grew the variety for nearly a century in the Glasgow, Kentucky area. Dates back to the 1890s. Late season. Indeterminate, potato leaf plant produces 12-18 oz., very large, round, meaty, pink beefsteak tomatoes with smooth shoulders, but some can have slightly ribbed shoulders. Excellent rich flavor, more sweet than acidic, especially later in the season.
