So here is a new one that I am growing. Big Beef tomato is new to me so will be fun to see how it grows in your garden. It sounds like a good tomato and see that many growers offer it as a variety of their tomatoes. It is in the beef steak family, so it is big, but unlike the other beef steak tomatoes we have carried it is smooth skin not the lumpy tomato that the older beef steak tomatoes have. So looks like a good slicer, good eater and great from the canning.
