Plant 2-3 seeds 1\/4\" deep per cell in fertile, humusy, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Beefsteak seeds germinate in 5-14 days, transplant best starts to 1 per pot or 18-36 inch apart in the garden. Ideal in container gardening.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBefore sowing, know whether the seed is determinate or indeterminate, as each will exhibit different habits. Determinate varieties mature to a predetermined size, producing its fruit all at once with only a minor need for staking. Indeterminate varieties grow indefinitely through the season, producing non-stop fruit while requiring heavy support. Beefsteak is an indeterminate tomato crop.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHeirloom Beefsteak Tomatoes in the Vegetable Garden\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTomato is the quintessential staple of summer gardening and arguably offers the most seed diversity among all seasonal fruits.

Along with cucumber and summer squash, the tomato plant is one of the most productive, hardy, and heavy fruiting crops of the season.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRemember, you must support this vigorous tomato bush. I still rip up old sheets into 1\" strips to tie my beefsteak tomatoes up. Something my grandmother taught me long ago. A string will cut into the stem and cages rarely hold big beautiful plants like this. Use sturdy stakes and tie your tomato vines up with your strips.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHarvesting Beefsteak Tomatoes\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSmaller varieties such as the cherry are ready to harvest at about 80 days from sowing while larger varieties like the beefsteak may require a few extra weeks. Although vine-ripened fruit is always preferred, tomatoes can just as easily be harvested early and ripen indoors by being stored in a paper bag or box along with a banana for its ethylene gas. Ripest tomatoes may be pulled from the vine by hand, while more firm ones should be clipped with shears.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAbout Beefsteak Tomato Seeds\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cem\u003eSolanum lycoperscium\u003c\/em\u003e.
