Omar's Lebanese is an open pollinated, heirloom variety from Omar Saab of Lebanon. The plant produces excellent yields of 1 to 2 lb pink beefsteak tomatoes. They are very sweet, meaty, juicy, and flavorful. Perfect for sandwiches, burgers, salads, and slicing. Excellent choice for home gardens.
In terms of color, they are a deep pink or light red, with a smooth and slightly ribbed skin. The flesh is meaty with few seeds and offers a rich, sweet, and slightly tangy flavor that is often described as complex and well-balanced. This makes them excellent for fresh eating, such as in salads or sandwiches, where their size and taste can be showcased.
Omar's Lebanese tomatoes are also known for their relatively vigorous growth habit and good disease resistance, making them a suitable choice for a variety of growing conditions. They typically require a warm, sunny environment and benefit from staking or caging due to their large fruit size. The plants are indeterminate, meaning they continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season until killed by frost. This variety is a favorite among heirloom tomato growers for both its taste and impressive size.
