This terrific red tomato was developed by Anthony Neves, who brought seeds from the Azores. A beautiful beefsteak with deep red fruit bursting with rich, full flavor. This medium to large acidic Neves Azorean Red Tomato is perfect for a tomato sandwich or a Caprese salad. Late Producer but worth the wait and back by popular demand. Indeterminate. 85-90 days.

Fantastic depth of flavor, rich. Classic tomato with reasonable yield.
Mammoth sized Tomato, October 11, 2016 By Bob
I was super impressed with the results of this beefsteak. Absolutely beautiful fruits for an heirloom, huge, flavorful. The only downside is the lateness, but you know what they say: "Good things come to those who wait."
