These are your big, juicy, old-fashioned grandma’s garden tomatoes. Known for their firm texture and summertime flavour, beefsteak tomatoes are less sweet than their smaller counterparts, but every bit as flavourful. These are perfect sliced onto sandwiches or burgers, or to temper the heat of a fresh salsa.
Orange-red appearance. Large round shape.
Juicy, meaty, succulent, plump flesh. Clean slicing.
For maximum flavour, don’t refrigerate your tomatoes. Leave them in a cool dry place, preferably in a paper bag. This will enhance their shelf-life and taste.
Avoid putting your tomatoes in direct sunlight as this will cause them to over-ripen.
