This is a very rare, wonderful red beefsteak that can get VERY LARGE. Most are over 1 lb with many even larger. The fruit are quite meaty with that wonderful old time flavor. Production is really good and it starts producing quite early.


I received seeds from Jackie Clay of Backwoods Home fame. She said she got the seeds from their local Veteran’s Service Officer. It was brought to this country during World War II supposedly by either an old Italian man who was immigrating here (with the seeds tucked into his sock!) or by a returning GI.
