Solanum lycopersicum

Item #3001

96 days from transplanting. Indeterminate.
What tomato lover wouldn’t love large, meaty, delectable tomatoes on their sandwiches? Beefsteak is an 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‑ to 2‑pound fruits! Produces summer to fall.

This packet yields approximately 24 plants when started indoors.

Days to Emerge:
5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1/4”

Seed Spacing:
A group of
3 seeds
every 24”

Row Spacing:
3’

Thinning:
When 2” tall
thin to 1
every 24”


When to sow outside: Recommended for mild climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost. Provide adequate light to produce sturdy plants.

Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of unripe tomatoes near the end of the season and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
