"Beefsteak" tomatoes produce prolifically, and the product is a whopper, often over a pound. Shape is rather elongated, with deep crevices near the stem end.
When and Where to Plant: For early crop start seeds indoors in pots or flats
5-7 weeks before planting outdoors. Place in sunny location, keeping soil moist
and warm. Transplant outdoors when 5-10"/13-25 cm. tall after the danger of
frost is passed. For later crop sow sparingly directly into garden, in sunny
location, after weather and soil are warm. Cultivate, apply vegetable food and
firm over seed.
Care: Stake or cage to save space. Water deeply when dry and feed monthly.
Harvesting: Pick gently when color is fully developed.
