Botanical Interests Organic Beefsteak Tomato Seeds
An old favorite with huge tomatoes sometimes reaching 2 pounds! Slice thick, succulent slabs for sandwiches.
96 days. What tomato lover wouldn't love large, meaty, delectable tomatoes on their sandwiches? Beefsteak is an old favorite not only for sandwiches, but also any dish calling for rich, tomato flavor. Vines are so vigorous (to 6' or more) you will need a sturdy wire cage to support them and the 1 to 2 lb. fruits! Produces summer to fall.
This packet plants approximately 24 plants when started indoors.
When to sow outside: Recommended for mild winter climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60° F.
When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.
Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant's remaining energy into ripening what's left. If you have a lot of green tomatoes near the end of the season, and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
