89 days. (Indeterminate) [Introduced in 1990 by SESE. Heirloom from Madison Co., Indiana, since 1940.] 'Hughs' has gained a local reputation for its meaty fruit and sweet delicious flavor. It was rated as one of the better-flavored of 250 tomatoes grown during the summer of 1988. Though it is a late maturing variety it is a heavy producer with some disease resistance. This pale yellow heirloom beefsteak rivals the flavor of the best heirloom red tomatoes. Pkt.
