Palmira’s Northern Italian Beefsteak

Introduced by ‘Skip’, who described it as follows: “I secured this most unusual large, red beefsteak tomato from a charming Italian lady at our local trash and treasure market. She told me that this tomato originated in northern Italy. That was all she could tell me, and being called Palmira I have named it after her.” First introduced in the Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Dan and Val McMurray, BC, Canada. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 10-22 oz., very large, red beefsteaks that are very meaty and juicy, with excellent, full, rich, tomato flavors.
