Beefsteak Heirloom Tomato

One of the first heirloom tomatoes I ever tasted was Beefsteak Heirloom Tomato. It is the tomato that got me seriously considering growing only heirlooms. Though my all heirloom tomato garden didn’t happen for at least a few more years, I have intentionally sought out this tasty variety every year since 1989.

Beefsteak Heirloom Tomato Vines

Beefsteak Heirloom Tomato vines grow to about 5 feet tall but I have seen some taller. They demonstrate a good amount of disease resistance and respond well to Serenade Fungicide. Vines are thick and bushy and bear a good amount of 8-16 ounce tomatoes that  begin to ripen about 80 days after transplant.

Beefsteak Heirloom Tomato Taste

Beefsteak Heirloom Tomato is a wonderful treat that is full of good meat and juice. It is neither sweet or tart. It’s  just a well balanced tomato that can be used for a multiplicity of things. I have made sandwiches and sauces with this variety and I was very pleased with it’s results. It’s also a great cooking tomato. My favorite way to eat it is to slice it, then cut each slice in half. I then get my pepper and a little salt. GOOD, GOOD , GOOD!
