Tomato Beefsteak is a classic variety of tomato, known for its large size and juicy flavor. This robust plant is an excellent choice for gardeners who want to grow their own tomatoes. The beefsteak tomato is a determinate variety, meaning it produces all of its fruit at once.

The fruits of the Tomato Beefsteak are large and round, with deep red coloration and a sweet, juicy flavor. These tomatoes are perfect for slicing and adding to sandwiches or salads. They also make delicious sauces and can be used in many recipes.

Planting:
• Plant seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date.
• Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep in moist soil.
• Place the container in a warm location (70-80°F) with bright light.
• Keep the soil moist, but not soggy.
• Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost date when they are 8-10 inches tall.
• Space plants 18-24 inches apart in rows 3-4 feet apart in full sun locations with well-drained soil.

Growing:
• Water plants regularly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.
• Mulch around plants to help retain moisture and control weeds.
• Fertilize every 2-3 weeks with a balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 or 5-10-5.
• Prune off suckers (side shoots) as needed to encourage larger fruit production.
• Stake or cage plants to provide support for the heavy fruits as they develop.
