Big, red and meaty beefsteaks that can reach 1.5 pounds, begin to ripen about 85 days after transplant. Hardy vines are thick, sturdy and need early staking. Sauce ready fruits are also perfect for sandwiches and biting huge chunks out of the reddest ones, right off the vines. These are sweet with great aroma and old fashioned taste. Begin staking right after transplant! Couilles de Tareau tomato is a great beefsteak!
