African Queen Tomato
Just so you would know, out of about 120 new varieties for 2020/2021, African Queen tomato is the very first listing. This is so because it is one of the most memorable varieties for our season. I love everything about this variety. 1-1.5 pound fruits grow on healthy potato leafed vines that can reach 6 feet. Production is fantastic and non-stop. One of the earliest large varieties to ripen for us. Our plants were loaded from the very bottom, all the way to the very top. Excellent disease resistance. Taste is very balanced and memorable. Not too sweet or acidic. Texture is superb, just waiting for you to bite into. Excellent choice for sandwiches, market sales and a lot more. Perfect as a main crop. You must grow this one!!

This was my first year growing but definitely not my last. I grew 8 African queen plants. Every plant I grew were absolutely loaded with large perfect looking pink beefsteaks. Great for sandwiches. The plants stayed very healthy, are still putting out prolifically , and are gorgeous plants and fruits. The taste is really good. It is not as good as a pink brandywine but the production and resistance to disease made up for it. I found that in a year where cracking was a problem with many of my varieties, the African queens did not crack at all. I highly recommend this tomato and I will certainly keep it in my garden.
