25+ Seeds. I grew this variety for the first time in 2012 and consider it to be one of my all-time favorites. I like fruity tomatoes, and this variety offers a delicious mango-like taste. Far more sweet than acidic. Not many seeds, not much juice, just meat. Outstanding!
Kentucky Beefsteak is the largest average-size tomato variety I have ever grown. Most of the fruit were in the 1 to 2-pound range, with numerous over 2 pounds (I've had a few reach almost 3 pounds). The plants have thick, strong vines and need support to bear the weight of such large fruit. Indeterminate, Open-Pollinated, 72 days from transplant. Origin: eastern Kentucky.
