Watermelon Beefsteak

An exquisitely gourmet heirloom that was nearly lost to the sands of time. Perhaps the best-tasting pink tomato we have ever eaten, this variety is a winner for its refreshing flavor. This super sweet 19th century heirloom has a flavor and color truly reminiscent of watermelon -- the resemblance is uncanny! The large beefsteaks weigh about 1-2 pounds each and are borne in profusions on 4-to-5 foot tall plants. Super prolific, easy to grow and mighty fine flavor! We love to scoop the firm meaty flesh with a melon baller for salads and snacking. Mentioned in Gleckler’s Seedsman catalog of Metamora, Ohio in 1958, where it is described as “an old variety that has been grown for nearly a century, but now practically extinct. It was found in the hands of only a few neighbors in a town of West Virginia.”
