Claude Brown’s Yellow Giant Tomato


Claude Brown’s Yellow Giant Tomato

I have a weakness for all tomatoes, but this year, 2017, confirmed that I am totally helpless when it comes to large beefsteaks. Gold Medal, Striped German, Giant Monster, Cleota Pink and many more,  have all seriously captured my attention.  I now have one more to add to the list! It’s called Claude Brown’s Yellow Giant tomato.

Claude Brown’s Vines

Claude Brown’s Yellow Giant vines are six feet tall and regular leafed. They produce clusters of 3-4, huge, deep yellow beefsteaks that begin to ripen about 80-85 days after transplant. Vines keep producing 1.5 -2lb beefsteaks all season long. A few fruits were larger than 2 lbs.  Even the very last fruits in mid-late October are 1 pound plus. My vines did not have any diseases but I did spray with copper sulfate beforehand. NOTE: This variety produced the biggest tomato in the garden this year 2017. It was 2 pounds 4 ounces.

Claude Brown’s Taste

When it comes to taste, Claude Brown’s Yellow Giant can match up with the best to them. It’s sweet, juicy, meaty and really satisfying. There is lots and lots of meat in this one. It is also a great sandwich tomato. Try making some sweet sauce, jams or jellies with this one. If you like to eat your tomato right off of the vine, as difficult as it may be to consume a whole one in one sitting, this tomato would also do the job! Add this one to your list if you love them extra huge and hardy!
