A pale yellow beefsteak that performs reasonably well. Size is comparable to Golden Ponderosa but lower yield and less taste. Large indeterminate vine.

Grew this heirloom cultivar for the first time during the 2013 growing season. Large indeterminate vine, but production was fairly low. The tomatoes produced were of a nice size and heavy. Even, pale yellow coloration throughout. Taste was good but not great. Probably won't go this route again, but would recommend it to those who may be interested in trying it.
