Ball's Beefsteak- VFFT Hybrid-76 days:  Indeterminate.  A great choice for gardeners  who want luscious big tomatoes but need them to mature early and stand up to the challenges of disease problems.  12-14 oz. globe shaped fruit on highly disease resistant plants. Sensational old fashioned flavor in a modern hybrid. compact plants.

Big Beef Hybrid-VFFNTASt-73 days:  A miracle of modern breeding. Many experts at the AAS trials described this variety of "the best tomato yet developed".
