Heirloom. This old-fashioned beefsteak has large, sweet fruits that are lower in acid and quite meaty, making them perfect for slicing. The indeterminate vines will grow tall and bear fruit all summer long, so be sure to stake strongly or cage. One slice makes a great sandwich filling!

German Queen Heirloom Tomato is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big, juicy, sweet fruit with balanced acidity. Doesn't produce a lot of fruit but what ever it does provide is by far one of the best tasting tomatoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tomato EVER! The plants get very tall and the fruit may be odd-shaped, but the taste is phenomenal. We've tried German Johnson and it was 'meh'. So happy to find German Queen this year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite tomato: I planted these for the first time last season and had no idea what to expect. The fruit took forever to set but when it did, oh my gosh!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No fruit 1st season: Planted this tomato last spring. All other varieties of tomatoes planted produced wonderfully except for this one. It did not put out a single tomato. However, it did survived the winter and is now showing a few flowers. We'll see if they set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Mater's: I've never been a person to like tomatoes alone. This tomato is sweet and flavorful when picked dead ripe from vine (not like 2 of 3 shown in pic). Texture inside is awesome, nothing like a store bought tomatoes you buy that seem to have skin, gel and seeds and very lttle flavor. I had six foot stakes this next year I'm going to three eight foot stakes (actually 10 foot'ers) it has a jungle like foliage with large...elephant like leaves. They have sucker leaves to pinch off. Best of the dozen or so varieties i've tried in the past five years. I can eat eat two three at a time as they aren't acidic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tomato I've grown: Delighted to see this one at my local big box home store from Bonnies each year. Makes gigantic tomatoes with incredible taste. May not yield as much as smaller tomatos, but taste is well worth it, and thanks to Bonnies, don't have to bother with growing seeds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best tomatoes I've ever grown: This tomato plant nor its seeds are easy to find at your local stores that support Burpee products. I've grown them on/off for a few different seasons when available. They haven't disappointed yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time growing German Queen. I stumbled across this variety, and it is quite POSSIBLY, the BEST tasting tomatoes I've ever eaten. Although the plant absent produces an overabundance of tomatoes the ones it has produced are very large 1 to 3 pounds!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quickly became my favorite in the raised planters. I had Rutgers (good), Mortgage Lifter (OK), Mr. Stripey (not worth the garden space), Romas I grew from seeds from last year (amazing), and two other varieties in addition to the German Queen. Next year I'm only growing Roma, German Queen and Rutgers. Gives me a broad spectrum of size and flavor for different uses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is the biggest plant in my garden, with quite a few flowers. But it does not have a single tomato coming and it is August. All of my other plants (Rutgers, Celebrity, Big Boy) have fruit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time trying this one. Very impressed with the size. We had 7 foot plants with most tomatoes weighing in at 16 ounces. No problem with blossom end rot. No problem with scarabs but the birds like them so we had to use netting. The tomato itself is low acid and a medium firm texture. It's a great eating tomato. It didn't hold up well for salsas and salads but it made one of the best red tomato jams I have ever canned. The shapes were the most beautiful part of the tomato. Classic heirloom shape. We have had tomatoes since late April and I think we will have them well in late July, early August. This is a perfect tomato to dice up and top your omelettes, chili, salads, or steaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have never in my life ever had a tomato that taste this good. The first year we grew them, the plant reached 7 foot tall and we had tomatoes that were the size of a large pancake, they were amazing and the flavor was so clean and sweet. I will never grow another kind of tomato again. Looking forward to another season of great mini farming. Loving this tomato, just try it.
