Late ripening stick variety with normal tomato leaves. The fruits are large, up to a diameter of 13 cm and weighing 400 g. The color of my fruits is dark purple. Varieties with rose fruits or potato leaves are also listed under the same name. The taste of this beef steak comes to me compared to other tomatoes of a similar size.

"Quite early and handsome; fruit smooth, and of a deep purplish-red color. This tomato has, in many localities, rotted considerably, and we would recommend either Burpee's Climax or the Essex Early Hybrid as more worthy of reliance for a market crop."
  • Some sources list it as potato leaf variety, and some sources list it as regular leaf.
