Buffalosteak’ is an indeterminate type that produces an abundance of meaty, red, flavorful, 6-7 oz. beefsteak tomatoes throughout the season. Earlier and more productive than similar hybrid varieties, it has excellent disease resistance and high yield.  The fruit matures in 75 to 80 days. Vigorous vines produce a bountiful crop of delicious, flavorful, red tomatoes. This tomato is a great slicer for sandwiches and salads, and for enjoying fresh off the vine. ‘Buffalosteak’ tomatoes have very few seeds, a flattened beefsteak shape, and slight ribbing. 

'Buffalosteak' Tomato Care  

Plant this tomato outside once all danger of frost has passed. Select a planting site with a well-draining, rich loam in full sun. The soil should be amended with plenty of organic matter such as garden compost. If you are unable to easily move your fingers through the soil in either your garden or in containers, the soil is too compact and needs amending.

You can prune by cutting off the lowest suckers (auxiliary shoots between stems and leaves) to allow for air circulation and adequate sun exposure. Removing a few suckers produces larger fruit. Tomatoes are heavy feeders, so water and fertilize them consistently throughout the season.

Growing 'Buffalosteak' Tomato 

Plant in full sun. The fruit matures in 75 - 80 days. Plants grow 5-6 ft tall and up to 3 ft wide so space individual plants 24- 36 inches apart. 

Provide growing support with a tomato cage or garden stakes; be sure to keep fruits off the ground. Apply a couple inches of natural mulch, which warms the soil, holds moisture in, and helps reduce weeds.

Watering 'Buffalosteak' Tomato 

Provide an inch or two of water per week, Be sure to water the roots slowly and deeply, sometimes daily, as summer temperatures increase. Water in the morning and avoid splashing the leaves. If your ‘Buffalosteak’ Tomato is planted in a container, it may have to be watered more frequently; check soil moisture often.  

Feeding 'Buffalosteak' Tomato 

Give your tomato plants a healthy foundation by planting them in soil that is rich in organic matter, particularly using garden compost. Tomatoes are heavy feeders and fast growers, so feeding throughout the season will produce great results. You can use a diluted liquid fertilizer specially formulated for tomatoes such as NPK 4-6-3 or NPK 3-4-6, applying a couple times per month. Always water plant roots thoroughly before applying any type of fertilizer to avoid root burning.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
