The Big Beef Hybrid Tomato is the finest all-around tomato yet developed for home gardening. 1994 AAS Winner! It is extra meaty with a real "homegrown" flavor and just the right balance of sugars and acids. Produces extra large, "beefy" fruit that average 10-12 oz. in most growing areas. Fruit shape is deep oblate to globe. Large vigorous plants are quite manageable when staked or grown in large cages. Yield large fruits high up on the vine and keep producing award-winning size fruit until a killing frost. Resistant to such diseases as verticillium wilt, fusarium wilt, fusarium wilt race 1 and race 2, alternaria stern canker, stemphylium (gray leaf spot), nematodes (root knot) and tobacco mosaic virus. These often kill the Beefsteak. Bred to yield attractive, extra-smooth fruit in high numbers. Only tomato to receive the 1994 AAS award!

73 days from setting out plants until first fruits mature. When raising transplants from seed add 6-8 weeks.

Planting guide: Start indoors 8 weeks before time to set in open ground. Cover thinly, then pack firmly and water. When plants are about 2 inches high, transplant to 3 inches apart in flat or pot. After danger of frost, set 2 to 3 feet apart in garden, but before doing so, harden the plants by gradually exposing them to the outdoor air for about a week.

These items are useful when starting seeds indoors for transplanting:

For protecting your transplants against late, unexpected frosts choose between Hotkaps plant protectors and Wall O' Water plant protectors.
