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.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

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.

Summer

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!

Winter

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.
