African Queen is a 12 – 20 ounce, pink beefsteak with excellent flavor. It was one of our most popular OP/heirloom tomatoes last year.
As shown in the photo above, African Queen can produce an amazing set of fruit – these are greenhouse plants grown in 5 gallon containers. Ironically, plants grown outside during the next season (summer of 2011) had very poor fruit set and the production was very low compared to the two previous years.
Seed Source: Our original seed source for this tomato was Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois
