One of three Ashlock brothers who served George Washington during the Revolutionary War settled in Kentucky. Carl Ashlock, now of Franklin, North Carolina, is descended from that patriot. Carl and his father and grandfather farmed in Kentucky in the 1920’s where they grew a large, pink, tomato variety, the seed of which, Carl shared with a few tomato growers. Large potato-leaf tomato plants that yield exceptionally delicious, 12-16 oz., pink, beefsteak tomatoes with a sweet , well-balanced taste. Rare tomato variety.
