This heirloom tomato dates back 100 years. Original seed was collected from West Virginia, where it had been grown for almost 100 years by a few mountain families, by the famed seedsman George Gleckler who introduced it in 1958. This is the true Watermelon Beefsteak. Indeterminate, regular-leaf tomato plants that yield HUGE, 1-2 lb., pink, beefsteak tomatoes that are lightly scalloped and loaded with deliciously rich and complex, old-time tomato flavors.
