Beefsteak Tomato Seeds (62-100 days)

Beefsteak tomato has vigorous indeterminate vines that will need to be staked to hold the HUGE 10 oz to 2 lb tomatoes.  Even though the fruits are so large, Beefsteak is still an abundant producer.  Beefsteak tomato is flat, solid, meaty, juicy and bright red. Beefsteak does not disappoint hard core tomato lovers.  Beefsteak makes an excellent slicer.  This tomato I'm told, has a rich sub-acid flavor.

Remember, you must support this vigorous tomato bush.  I still rip up old sheets into 1 inch strips to tie my beefsteak tomatoes up.  Something my grandmother taught me long ago.  String will cut into the stem and cages rarely hold big beautiful plants like this.  Use sturdy stakes and tie your tomato vines up with your strips. 

Beefsteak Tomato is recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region .   FL

Planting Tips for Heirloom Tomatoes:

Most gardeners want to get the most out of these delicious heirloom tomatoes and therefore give them a head start on the growing season.  Start these vegetable seeds indoors in sterile potting mix being sure to keep the temperature above 70 degrees.  Some people prefer to use a grow pad but the top of the fridge has been known to be quite effective as well. 

Once the first true leaves appear on your tomato seedlings, transplant into 4" pots until you have completely hardened them off in the garden.  Hardening is a process of exposing the plants more and more to outside temperature until they are hardy enough to tollerat a complete outdoor move.  Generally speaking, by early summer heirloom tomatoes should be transplated into the garden.

Most heirloom varieties are quite productive and will greatly benefit from sturdy supports.  It may also be advisable to add blood and bone to the worked soil to help ensure healthy productive heirloom tomatoes.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Tomato Seeds:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
