This time-honored tomato is a testament to the joys of traditional gardening, having been passed down through the years due to its undeniable appeal.
Its name says it all - Beefsteak. This tomato is hefty and packed with juiciness. The slices are thick, making it a favorite for sandwiches, where a single slice can cover a piece of bread. Its deep, rich flavor also ensures it's the star in salads, pastas, and many other dishes, without being overwhelmed by other ingredients.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Begin your Beefsteak Tomato journey by sowing the seeds indoors, about 1/4 inch deep, roughly 6-8 weeks before the expected last frost. If you're keen on direct sowing, wait for the soil to get warm and welcoming. When spacing, ensure you give these giants room to grow, allowing for 24-36 inches between plants, and setting rows approximately 36-48 inches apart. As an indeterminate variety, the Beefsteak Tomato doesn't believe in limiting its bounty, producing fruit all season long. Hence, it's advisable to stake or cage them, providing the necessary support for their vigorous growth.
