You haven’t tasted a really good beefsteak unless you tasted a Mama Irene’s Tomato. Huge beefsteaks that are constantly over 1.5 pounds, just keep coming all season long. Everything is large on a Mama Irene’s vine. It is a very meaty tomato that you will absolute love. Vines are not tall but very bushy. Stake well! Fruits begin to ripen about 85 days from transplant!!
