“Maylor Roth’s Orange” yields large orange beefsteaks. It is also called “Maylor Roth’s Orange Brandywine;” however, it is not known if there is actually any relation of this line to the Brandywine lines. It has been challenging for me to grow because it is late, and quite a large beefsteak (meaty, relatively few seeds).
The flavor is sweet on the first taste but has enough acid to make it interesting and not bland. The texture is neither firm or soft and the skin is tender. Most of the fruits it produced were 1 pound or slightly greater.
I have to laugh and say that it definitely produced more than Yellow Brandywine, since Yellow Brandywine produced NO fruit for me the three times I tried to grow it. Maylor Roth wants to be a healthy plant, but it doesn’t seem to care for high humidity and heat. My plant started out very vigorous and then gradually declined as the “H&H” climbed starting in May.
