Excellent full flavor. Beefsteak fruits are a deep purple-red that ripen to dusky-violet. Superb for slicing and in salads. This heirloom variety pre-dates the Russian Revolution of 1917 and originates from the Crimean Peninsula, colloquially know as the Isle of Krim, located on the black Sea coast. A heavy cropper, this tomato is a favorite at Fruit Hill Farm. If we could only grow one kind, this would be it!
