Product Overview

Solanum lycopersicum

An old favorite with huge tomatoes sometimes reaching two pounds! Slice thick, succulent slabs for sandwiches.

What tomato lover wouldn't love thick, meaty slices of homegrown tomatoes on their sandwiches? 'Beefsteak' is a century-old favorite not only for sandwiches, but also any dish calling for rich, tomato flavor. Vines are so vigorous (up to 6' or more) you will need a sturdy wire cage to support them and the 1–2-pound fruits! Produces summer to fall.

Variety Info

10 oz.–2 lb. round, somewhat flattened, lightly ribbed, bright red fruits. 'Beefsteak' was first offered by H.W. Buckbee Seed Co. in 1900.
