In 2015 I will grow only twenty beefsteak tomatoes, of which about half will be Spanish. This year I saw no difference in growth between the Spanish beefsteaks (they are often a variety of higher altitudes) and other beefsteaks varieties.

PS.: Of course, I also photographed other than Spanish beefsteaks, but I think that putting for example Neves Azorean Red on this web, would be pointless.

Any breeding or just for consumption?

I grew several of those you have, can't say I dislike any of them.

This season I grew a lot of very tasty Spanish tomatoes. It was a tomatoes red, pink, purple and black, no orange, white or yellow. I could not ensure the seeds of these tomatoes this year. Next year I shall create a private gene bank of old Spanish and Czech varieties. I was pleased that joined to me Moshou. I sent him seeds of twelve varieties of Spanish.

After a very cold May last week warmed with us and tomatoes finally began to grow. Today I started work on my gene bank. I put into bags from curtains 45 tomato plants, mostly Spanish steaks.. Weather should be optimal for the pollination of flowers, 25- 30 ° C and dry (forecast for the next fourteen days).

Marsha,
Thank you for the compliment. I'm glad you understand what I write. I really do have no control of my English, I write something and I just hope it's understandable.

I got seeds of this Spanish variety from MMM 2014. The description and the pictures are shown at Tatiana's TOMATObase
http://t.tatianastomatobase.com/wiki/Fresa
It's a very nice tomato and tasted me a lot. I have found no other information on the Internet.

Your Rosa de Huesca looks strange to me. Do you know more details about it?

Under that name you usually see "Rosa de Barbastro", but Huesca is big and is also used for other varieties.

Ilex, thank you for your feedback. You're right that the tomato is really resembles Rosa de Barbastro. But the tomato is indeed Rosa de Huesca, as shown on this website
http://www.eltomatista.com/tomate-rosa-de-huesca/
Seeds I got from J.A.O.Lopez (Baikal). How this tomato tastes me I'll write later. I do not still ripe tomatoes Rosa de Huesca. Picture of green fruit.
