Huge Yields of Giant Fruit!
These beefsteaks reach an incredible 1 1/2 pounds apiece!
80 days. A mouth-watering giant red tomato, Beefmaster Hybrid routinely wins the size award at county fairs and contests. This massive beefsteak-type is not only huge but very heavy-bearing, with stunning yields over a long season on indeterminate vines.
How big IS Beefmaster Hybrid? Well, plan on many 1-pound tomatoes, and some as large as 1 1/2 pounds! Despite all their bulk, they are also savory and delicious, with a good solids-to-gel ratio and intense flavor.
A bigger-than-life variety you will admire and enjoy, this plant is resistant to Verticillium Wilt, Fusarium Wilt, and Root Knot Nematodes.
Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Do not wait too long to set the plants out; in order to set fruit, tomatoes need a period of vernalization with temperatures around the 40's. Set plants 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart
