For massive, juicy, flavorful, red-and-yellow tomatoes, look no further than the Buffalosun Beefsteak Tomato. With indeterminate, vigorous growth and disease resistance, this easy hybrid tomato was bred for success. Producing humongous 18-24 ounce fruits in about 70 days, the Buffalosun grows best in full sun with average, well-draining soil. Buffalosun has the benefit and beauty of an heirloom in an easy-to-grow hybrid package.
Buffalosun Beefsteak Tomato Plant Care
Plant the Buffalosun Beefsteak Tomato in the spring when temperatures are above 70°F. Choose a spot that receives all day sunlight with average, well-draining soil. The Buffalosun plant will grow to about 5-6 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide, requiring plenty of space to grow and staking for support. Tomatoes do best when watered regularly, so allow the top few inches of soil to dry out a bit before watering deeply. The Buffalosun is crack resistant, making it more tolerant of occasional periods of drought. Because Buffalosun has indeterminate growth, pinch back “suckers” – the tiny leaves in between the main stem and new branches, which can become low-yielding stems – frequently to help the plant focus on growing higher quality fruit.
Growing Buffalosun Beefsteak Tomato Plant
The Buffalosun is ready to harvest 110 days from seed and 70 days from transplant, producing ripe fruit that is ribbed like a Beefsteak tomato and appears yellow with red flames. These 5-6-foot tall tomato plants will need to be planted at least 19 inches apart to ensure that the branches are receiving adequate sunlight for fruit to ripen.
If provided with support, this is an ideal tomato plant for container gardening. To ensure the plant has enough room to grow, choose a pot with drainage holes and at least a 14-inch diameter; be sure to use a high-quality potting soil. Tomato plants in containers may require more frequent deep watering than those in a garden bed.
Watering Buffalosun Beefsteak Tomato Plant
Early in the season, tomatoes will benefit from daily watering early in the morning, watering deeply to ensure that the entire root system is receiving water and to encourage deep root growth. As temperatures and plant size increase, the Buffalosun may need water twice a day. Take care to avoid wetting the leaves of tomato plants to prevent the spread of foliar diseases.
Feeding Buffalosun Beefsteak Tomato Plant
Tomato plants are heavy feeders, benefiting from regular fertilizing throughout their growing season. Ensure that your tomatoes are planted in high-quality soil that is rich in nutrients. Both organic and inorganic fertilizers can be used on tomatoes; choose formulas higher in phosphorus to encourage fruit growth.
