About Crimson Cushion

Crimson Cushion AKA Red Ponderosa AKA Beefsteak. Considered the original heirloom “Beefsteak” tomato. An old-time favorite that has been popular for many years due to it’s excellent productivity and wonderful taste. Lush, thick, indeterminate, regular-leaf, tomato plants yield from vigorous vines, 4-5″, slightly ribbed, bright-red tomatoes that have spectacularly delicious, sweet flavors. This tomato’s excellent taste and meaty flesh make it an ideal tomato for eating fresh or cooking, for slicing into sandwiches, using in salads or for canning!
