Beefsteak Tomato

You are reading that correctly, that tomato weighs almost 2 1/4 pounds. Two years ago I decided to try growing Beefsteak tomatoes instead of the usual Better Boy tomatoes that I usually grow.

Compared to a regulation size baseball.
The plants themselves grew to almost 8 feet tall, producing these giant tomatoes. The only problem is if you like a slice of tomato on your hamburger, this variety was almost the size of the plate and didn't fit on the burgers very well.
