Tomato - Beefsteak - Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. The vigorous vines of this popular beefsteak produce flat, meaty, juicy, red, medium-size fruit ranging from 10 ounces to 2 pounds. This great slicing or canning tomato has rough, ribbed skin with a richly flavored flesh.

Did You Know? Research shows that protective effects of tomatoes against prostate cancer and cardiovascular disease result from the synergy of lycopene with other phytonutrients naturally present in whole tomatoes. Lycopene is highest in organically grown tomatoes.

Soil & Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Soak the soil 4"-6" deep at 7-day intervals.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when individual fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.

Customer Reviews

Great on pizza

I got free seeds for this from the company. The plant was vigorous and fairly productive. The tomatoes were all medium-sized, and perfectly round with no ribbing. It did not set fruit in the extreme heat (but set fine after it cooled). The taste was good. It holds its taste when cooked on pizza better than any other tomato I've tried. While indoors (I started it really early) it was one of the more susceptible plants to a condition that I think was either edema or downy mildew. It was also one of the most indeterminate plants.
