Lancaster County Pink
Temporary borrowed description — I had received 3 plants in a plant/seed trade. They were supposed to be the fabled "Amish Paste Tomato". Imagine my surprise when just about the largest beefsteak sized tomatoes I have ever grown started showing up on huge potato leafed vines, extremely early in the season! This tomato was very deep pink and monster sized, especially since it was so early. Most of the amazingly prolific fruit were 1 to 1-1/2 pounds each! Some of the fruit had a bit of green on their shoulders, especially early in the season. The vines grew at least 8 feet or more on very thick strong trunks, like small trees! In one day I picked about 40 of these giant fruit off of just those 3 plants!
