Avon Early

I really like this rare old tomato from the 1920’s. You get nice sized red beefsteaks in the 6-10 oz range. I found it to be quite productive of slightly ribbed fruit that are juicy and have really good flavor – more in the sweet range than acidic. It started producing quite early for me. All in all, a very nice tomato!
