Dester, aka Dester’s Amish Beefsteak, won 1st place at the 2011 SSE Tomato Tasting, and 2nd place at the 2012 tasting, so there’s a lot of people who think this is an excellent tasting tomato.
An Amish lady gave the original seeds of this tomato to Larry Pierce and told him it had been in her family for generations. Larry now grows the seeds offered by SSE and he also sells them at his website.
