Planting Guide for Beefsteak Tomato:

1. Choosing the right location: Select a spot in your garden that receives full sun for at least 6-8 hours a day. Ensure the area has well-drained soil with a pH level between 6.0-6.8.

2. Preparing the soil: Before planting, prepare the soil by removing any weeds, rocks, or debris. Loosen the soil using a garden fork or tiller to a depth of about 12-18 inches. Incorporate organic matter like compost or aged manure to improve the soil’s fertility and drainage.

3. Starting seeds indoors: Alternatively, you can start tomato seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date in your area. Sow the seeds in seed trays or small pots filled with seed-starting mix. Keep the soil consistently moist, and place the containers in a warm area with indirect sunlight. Transplant the seedlings outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.

4. Transplanting seedlings: Once the soil temperature reaches around 60°F (15°C), it’s time to transplant the tomato seedlings. Space the plants about 24-36 inches apart, allowing enough room for air circulation and each plant’s future growth. Dig a hole slightly deeper than the root ball, remove the lower leaves from the stem, and plant the seedling up to the remaining leaves. Gently tamp the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

5. Providing support: Beefsteak tomatoes often require support due to their large and heavy fruit. Install trellises, stakes, or cages around each plant to ensure the tomato vines stay upright and off the ground. This helps prevent diseases and encourages better airflow and sunlight penetration.

6. Watering and mulching: Tomatoes need consistent moisture, especially during fruiting. Water your beefsteak tomato plants deeply about 1-2 inches per week, either through rain or supplemental irrigation. Avoid overhead watering to prevent diseases. Applying a layer of organic mulch around the plants will help retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth.

7. Fertilizing: Provide regular feedings of balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and abundant fruit production. Apply a slow-release fertilizer at planting time and follow up with additional applications every 4-6 weeks during the growing season. Additionally, you can incorporate compost or organic matter into the soil each year to replenish nutrients.

Harvesting Guide for Beefsteak Tomato:

1. Determining ripeness: Beefsteak tomatoes are typically ready for harvest 75-85 days after transplanting. Look for fully ripened fruit with a deep, rich color. The tomatoes should be firm yet slightly soft to the touch, and they should detach easily from the plant without pulling or applying excessive force.

2. Harvesting techniques: Using a sharp pair of garden shears or scissors, cut the tomatoes from the vine, leaving a small stem attached. Avoid twisting or yanking the fruit, as it may damage the plant and affect future fruit production. Be careful not to bruise or crush the tomatoes during harvest.

3. Post-harvest storage: If you don’t plan on consuming the tomatoes immediately, they can be stored at room temperature in a cool, dark place for up to a week. Avoid refrigerating them, as it can negatively impact their flavor and texture. If needed, you can also freeze or can the tomatoes for longer-term storage.

By following these planting and harvesting guidelines, you can successfully grow and enjoy delicious beefsteak tomatoes in your garden.

As
a seller, I understand that there may be some confusion when it comes
to the terms and conditions of shipping and delivery. In order to
provide clarity, I would like to address a few important points:

1.
3 business day shipping: We strive to ship out your order within three
business days from the date of purchase. This means that weekends
(Saturday and Sunday) are not considered business days, so please keep
this in mind when estimating your delivery time.

2. No tracking
on orders under $16: Due to the rising costs of delivery, we regretfully
cannot provide tracking information for orders under $16. This allows
us to keep our prices competitive while still offering reliable shipping
services.

3. Estimated delivery dates: While we make every
effort to provide accurate estimated delivery dates, they should be
viewed as approximations. Various factors, such as unforeseen delays in
transit, may impact the actual delivery date. We kindly ask for your
understanding should any discrepancies arise.

4. Seller’s lack of
control over third-party delivery: Once the order is placed with USPS
or any third-party delivery service, we, as the seller, have no control
over the speed of delivery. We rely on their efficiency and processes to
ensure your package arrives in a timely manner.

5. Longer
delivery times: In some cases, orders may take up to 15 business days to
be delivered. While this is not typical, it is important to note that
different factors, such as customs processes, distance, or volume of
orders, can contribute to longer delivery times.

6. Contact
seller before opening a case or leaving negative feedback: We kindly
request that if you encounter any issues with your order, please reach
out to us directly before opening a case or leaving negative feedback.
We are here to help and will do everything we can to resolve any
problems you may have.
