General Information: Often considered the finest all-around tomato, Big Beef produces extra large, “beefy” fruit and large, vigorous and disease-resistant plants.
Idea & Tips: Water thoroughly twice per week, and try to water early in the day so that plants will dry off before evening.
Tomatoes prefer regular feeding once the fruit sets, but too much early in the season will grow a large plant with fewer tomatoes.
Mulching helps ensure an even supply of moisture.
