Barnes Mountain Orange Tomato
85 Days. Without a doubt, Barnes Mountain Orange tomato is a beefsteak I will grow every year. This huge deep yellow fruits can easily each 1.5 pounds. Many or ours have been bigger. Taller vines produce a good amount of fruits that easily drag their vines down, so stake well. This delicious beefsteak is meaty, sweeter and rich with lower acidity. Perfect for sandwiches, sauces and market sales. Try some in the garden but take a friend with you. It’ll be a task trying to get it done all alone! See it in YouTube.

These were large and low acid but mild to the point they lacked flavor. Mine also had skin that was on the thicker side which I don't care for.
I have grown Barnes Mountain tomatoes for the past 2 years. As the description says, it is one I will grow every year from now on. Very meaty and juicy, so much so that when you cut one up into a bowl, it actually resembles a bowl of sliced peaches. Nice low acid flavor.
