Watermelon Beefsteak

Copyrighted © photo courtesy of TomatoFest Heirloom Tomato Seeds

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.
