Aunt Ginny's Purple

Tomatoes with a clear skin and red flesh are now called Pinks, where once it was common to refer to them as purple, and now we reserve the name purple for those tomatoes with darker shading to the skin and flesh.  This large pink beefsteak is a good representative of the heirloom German pinks, with excellent flavor and reliable production.  This one comes to us by way of Indiana, where its yearly selection likely influenced its growing characteristics.
