This is the first year I grew the 'Aussie' heirloom beefsteak tomato. It is outstanding and has now replaced the 'Delicious' variety as my favorite 16 to 32 ounce tomato. It matured a few days ago. It is definitely 85 days to maturity. It is sweet, huge, and no acidity. None. I included a quarter in the picture so you could have some perspective. A great tomato!

This tomato is in my hand. It is huge. The quarter just covers the spot where the stem was attached to the tomato. This is well over 16 ounce. It is a giant. It is the biggest tomato I have every grown. This tomato grew naturally. Naturally in the sense, I didn't prune fruit from the tomato plant as a way for 1 tomato to get all the nutrients and grow large. There are 5 other 1 pound plus tomatoes on the tomato right now.

I just wanted to show another picture of the Aussie heirloom tomato. I really believed I approached 2 pounders. Next year I will take them to my local Giant and weigh them.

Aussie, Brandywine, Cherry Tomatoes: Gary Pilarchik

Just to give you a little perspective. The Brandywine is the 16 oz variety.  The cherry tomato is a large cherry type. The Aussie is bulky. The Brandywine is a great 1 pounder variety too!


  1. I bought your 14 Variety Sampler Package of Tomatoes mainly because of the Saras Galapagos seeds. But there were some other goodies there as well. (The letter went across the ocean within a week!) Thanks for swapping a couple of the varieties so that instead I could get more seeds of two other varieties.

    I haven't yet read any articles on your site, but I watched some pictures, and was inspired by your elevated plank beds, and have decided to make some myself! :-)

    In about a week I will begin planting tomato seeds, which is probably about time.

    Happy seeding.

    1. Thanks so much and good luck! The raised beds work great for warming and containing good soil. Less work in the end.

  2. Hi well your seeds have made it to Aussie land its winter here so I was impressed when after 1 week up they sprouted its now 6th of July so at the end of this month I will plant them and all being well will have fruit for early spring will keep u up to date on the progress thanks john.
