Beyond its intriguing color, the Great White Beefsteak offers a delightful culinary experience. Its low acid content and limited seeds make it a favorite for those seeking a milder taste. Whether you're looking to jazz up a salad, create a visually appealing sandwich, or simply want a fresh bite, this tomato delivers on taste without the usual tomato acidity.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Being of the indeterminate type, the Great White Beefsteak Tomato will continuously produce fruit throughout its growing season. It's recommended to start seeds indoors, roughly 6-8 weeks prior to the last expected frost. When transplanting outdoors, give them a space of 24-36 inches in rows spaced 36 inches apart. These tomatoes are sun lovers and will thrive best in well-draining soil. Given their indeterminate nature and the potential size of the fruit, it's a good idea to stake or cage the plants, offering them the support they need as they reach their full height and begin fruit production.
