The classic beefsteak tomato of yesteryear is back! Massive fruit, easily reaching 1-2 lbs has deep red flesh and good old-fashioned tomato flavor. These are the tomatoes that grandma grew, meaty and firm, perfect on sandwiches or served straight up with a pinch of salt. A particularly good producer in the Northeast, but well adapted to the entire U.S. as well. Scientists recently determined that Beefsteak’s massive fruit was originally caused by a chance mutation. This happy accident created a much larger tomato. Spanish conquistador, Hernan Cortez, brought samples of a larger, flattened tomato back to Europe. From this seed was developed many larger tomatoes we know today. To grow larger tomatoes only allow 2-3 fruits to grow per plant.
