Beefsteak Variety 'Big Boy'
A medium sized plant variety that will need support, it with good flower and fruit development and a very good yield potential. Consistent large fruit size and heart shape throughout the season which ripens from the inside out. The fruit has good shelf life and is reminiscent of traditional tomato varieties. Perfect for slicing to accompany a salad, for use in sandwiches or best when eaten with soft cheeses. A variety that you will just love to to grow and taste.
Your tomato plants will have been grown indoors with artificial heat and light to make sure they are as healthy as possible for you. This does however mean that you shouldn't put your tomatoes straight outside when it's too cold. The general rule of thumb is to start putting your tomato plant outside for a few hours a day from the start of May to acclimatise it (bring it in if a late frost looks likely). If your lucky enough to have your own greenhouse you can start planting a couple of weeks earlier, and if its heated, even earlier. A nice high nitrogen feed will work wonders.
