Big, REALLY big, red, juicy tomato. One slice will cover your entire sandwich and maybe have a bit hanging over the edges. Juice running down your chin when you bite into it… better have lots of napkins!
Beefsteak tomato is considered one of the best large tomatoes. Flavor is mild.. not too sweet, not too acid.. just right.
These fruits weigh in at 12 ounces and up. Some will hit 2 pounds, given the proper care.
Be sure to have large, strong stakes or large cages to hold these huge vines.
Plant 3 ft apart, in rows that are 2ft wide… or grow in a large container
Time from transplanting to harvest: 80-96 days
