Andrew Rahart’s Jumbo Red

A classic looking heirloom tomato – very irregular shaped beefsteak - that is nice and large, usually 1 lb. Flavor is really good, rich and balanced – that nice old fashioned tomatoey goodness. It has good production and fruit are generally blemish free – a great heirloom.
