Lycopersicon esculentum

Considered the original heirloom “Beefsteak” tomato. An old-time favorite that has been popular for many years due to its excellent productivity & wonderful taste. Produces lush, thick, indeterminate, regular- leaf, tomato plants that yield from vigorous vines with good yields of large 500 – 900g tomatoes. 10 to 12.5 cm, slightly ribbed, bright-red tomatoes that have marvelous delicious, sweet flavors. This tomato’s excellent taste & meaty flesh make it an ideal tomato for eating fresh or cooking, for slicing into sandwiches, in salads, juicing, preserving & relishes.

Sow in a good mix of soil and lightly cover – keep moist but not wet.  To transplant, plant deeper, up to the 1st set of true leaves, this increases rooting & speeds maturity. keep fertilized & evenly watered.
