Seeds sent to Gary Ibsen from a seed company that had sourced seeds from USDA. Seeds were supposed to be a large, pink beefsteak heirloom but after growing them out in 2 trials he found them to be not pink at all but a striped ‘jewel.’ He serendipitously ended up with incredibly large (1-2 lb.), gold-red striped beefsteak fruits. Grown out in following years the fruit proved to be just as wonderfully splendid. Juicy, few seeds, tropical fruity flavors.
