Product Description

Tasty Beef is an all-new kind of beefsteak tomato! Heard of Big Beef? It's a type of tomato known for its classic, old-time tomato flavor. Tasty Beef Tomatoes are known for the same thing--except with a more flavorful fruit, and large, hefty tomatoes that grow between 12-16 oz. Their scarlet-red exteriors and interiors boast an ideal balance of sweetness and acidity, so you'll love it for all your favorite tomato dishes, including pico de gallo, salads, wraps, or sliced on top of hamburgers. Indeterminate. Tasty Beef will resist Fusarium Wilt Race I and Verticillium Wilt. 75 days to maturity.
