Dester

Copyrighted © photo courtesy of Baker Creek Seeds

A German Heirloom. The seed came Baker Creek Seeds from an Amish woman who worked as a house cleaner for Dr. Dester and his wife in Indiana in the 1970’s. The Desters acquired this treasured seed from Germany and it became their favorite tomato. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces large, 1-1 1/2 lb., pink beefsteak tomatoes with a sweet flavor making it an excellent slicer. A delicious tasting tomato.
