Netherlands: Lans switches to Rebelski beefsteak crop

Dutch tomato growers Cees and Leo van der Lans are reliving old times. "In greenhouse 1 on the Herenwerf we are going to grow Rebelski beefsteak tomatoes of the Ruiter Seeds/Monsanto," the company says. "A whole new cultivation challenge as it is a relatively new crop for us."

Still, the cultivation is not entirely unknown to them, as they used to grow beefsteaks a couple of decades back as well. You can see that in this old picture:

Rebelski has positioned itself as a true rebel in the existing beef tomato segment because of the following properties:
  • Characteristic authentic ribbed beefsteak tomato shape
  • Red color interior
  • Red color exterior
  • IR Mildew resistance, which makes this tomato even more durable
  • Recessed handle, which reduces the risk of puncture damage to a minimum
  • Great, typical beef tomato taste 
  • Excellent quality also in summer, the period in which beef tomatoes are most consumed
