This big, beautiful beefsteak tomato with fabulous flavor is a cross between the famous pink Brandywine and a treasured family variety from Italy. Juicy, flavorful and heavy in the hand, Chianti Rose tomatoes are thin skinned with smooth, creamy flesh and glowing rosy-red color. The strong vigorous vines with potato-leaf foliage tolerate cooler summers and are more crack-resistant and uniform than other large-fruited heirlooms.

Mature height: 5 to 7 feet.

Harvest beginning about 80 days from transplantation.
