Tomato Fred Limbaugh Potato Top

Pink Beefsteak heritage tomato on potato leafed indeterminate plants.


Fred Limbaugh’s Potato Top (aka Limbaugh’s Legacy Potato Top) is one of the (fairly numerous) pink beefsteak tomato on indeterminate, potato leafed plants. They produce large numbers of large fruit (1-2lb) which are slightly flattened and fluted. Really tasty with fruity sweet flavours.

The heirloom seeds were saved by Fred Limbaugh (and his father and grandfather before him), hence the name.

These similar to Mortgage Lifter, Pink Brandywine and many other varieties in size, colour and taste. We grew these in 2013 and 2014 and found that, whilst the taste was excellent, the number and weight of the fruit were less than Pink Brandywine (in particular) and Mortgage Lifter so it becomes one of the ongoing debates as to which plants one should grow each year
