Ratings & Reviews
I really can't rate the Gold Medal tomatoes because I believe mine were packaged wrong. I think what I got were Pink Ox Heart tomatoes (which were a great tomato) but they definitely were not the Gold Medal that I ordered.
Large, no cracking
by 6B Gardener
Fried some of these green, and used for green salsa - delicious. Eaten ripe they were delicious too. Large fruit, no cracking issues.
Great tasting productive tomato
This tomato was friggen delicious. Like eating candy from the vine. I will plant this every year.
My favorite beefsteak tomato that i have grow so far for flavor. We go a pretty good harvest off each plant and i did plant them a little late. Will grow again.
Attractive with great flavor
Productive. Great flavor. Attractive when sliced. Full flavor. A favorite. Pick just before fully ripe to prevent cracking/rot.
