Gerorge's Greek Beefsteak tomato
GEORGE'S GREEK BEEFSTEAK

Notes to myself from 2013: "GROW THIS!" Large (1 lb.+), red, slightly flattened and slightly fluted beefsteaks with above average production in a way below average gardening year. The taste was excellent, too.

HISTORY: Tatiana Kouchnareva received seed from her co-worker Tina Exarchoulis, of Vancouver, BC in 2005, it in her garden in  2006 and then offered it in the 2007 SSE Yearbook. Tina said that her Dad (George Exarchoulis) has been growing this tomato for many years in his garden in Vancouver, BC, and that he brought the original seeds with him when he immigrated to Canada from Greece. George did not know the name of this variety, as he has only been growing two tomato varieties, this large beefsteak and a cherry, and he said he usually referred to it as a "Large Red", but suggested to name it "George's Greek Beefsteak".
