Gold Medal Tomato

August 18th, 2015

I harvested my first big heirloom beefsteak tomato, which is quite nice for our area. The other beefsteaks are a few weeks away still. It’s no wonder this tomato is called ‘Gold Medal’, and aptly so.

They’re large tomatoes, with good flavor and quite beautiful color.

It’s a delicious tomato, in fact I took one to a cookout on Saturday and everyone loved it. I harvested another one yesterday and we enjoyed it for breakfast and dinner.

How are you tomatoes doing? What’s your favorite beefsteak?

    Is the interior golden as well? We’re having a bumper tomato crop for our first time ever. It’s our first time having a proper garden, so maybe that’s the difference. We’ve had beautiful sweet cherry tomatoes for a few weeks. The larger ones are just coming on now. I’ve had caprese salads for lunch two days in a row. They’re so good!
