I can’t tell you about this tomato until I tell you a story. I received a second hand packet of seeds that had originally been sent from a seed bank in Germany to my friend in Canada. The original packet contained 3 seeds. The pack was sent from Canada last winter to me here in Arkansas. When I opened the packet there was only one shriveled up brownish colored seed. It did not look viable. I planted it anyway and held my breath. It germinated and it grew into a monster 7 foot tall regular leaf plant that produced one of the best tasting tomatoes I have ever had. It was so good that I considered never telling a soul about it and just keeping it all for myself. I took one main branch of that plant and stick it in a pot. It didn’t take long for it to take root and from there I had two plants. Those two plants produced the seed I have. I don’t have much but it would not be right for me to not share. I still can’t believe that one tiny almost lost seed managed to give me a huge crop of big red tomatoes. These great tasting German beefsteaks were all in the 12 ounce or larger range. I had a few that were bigger than a pound. Make sure to click on all 3 pictures I have up. Hands down, this was my favorite tomato this year. It might be the best tomato I have ever tasted. Maybe it was just the story that made it so good, or maybe it really is that good. I can’t wait to plant it again next year.
