EXCLUSIVE - If you yearn for old-fashioned beefsteak tomato taste, size, and quality, this All-America winner is our hands-down favorite, combining delicious full flavor, heavy yields, wide adaptability and truly superior disease resistance (V-1, F-1, F-2, ASC, St.N, ToMV). The huge globe-shaped fruits size up about 10-12 oz each, without the cracked tops or fibrous interiors of older beefsteak varieties.

Planting Instructions: In early spring, start indoors about 6 to 8 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 50-55°F (10-13°C). Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm, 80°F (27°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside.
When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant into individual 4 inch pots. Maintain at 70°F (21°C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until ready to plant. When nights reach 55°F (13°C), gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions. Plant these vigorous indeterminate climbers 3 feet apart into rich soil in full sun.
For best flavor, pick these beauties fully red-ripe and don’t store them in the refrigerator.
