Vigorous heirloom beefsteak variety came to America in the late 1800s from the Black Forest region of Germany via Joe Bratka’s grandfather. Joe shared seeds with Carolyn Male in 1990, and she listed it in the 1992 SSE Yearbook. Tall, indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce 1 to 2 pound, deep-gold fruits with a red blush, red streaks on blossom end and throughout the inside. Slightly ribbed shoulders and slightly flattened. Very seedy. Rich, outstanding sweet flavor.
