73 days from setting out transplants. Indeterminate. With earlier maturity and superior disease tolerance, Big Beef Hybrid bears at least DOUBLE the number of extra-large, extra-meaty, extra-tasty fruits of other varieties in its class. The fruits have better shape, color, and old-time tomato flavor, too! No wonder Big Beef won an AAS award!
These well-adapted, indeterminate plants are tolerant of, or resistant to, Verticillium Wilt, Fusarium Wilt races 1 and 2, Tobacco Mosaic Virus, Root Knot Nematodes, and Stemphylium (Gray Leaf Spot).
Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart.
