Nice tomato, on the sweet side. My plant is container grown and it yielded 3 lbs of tomatoes.

Everything about Beefy Boy is larger-than-life, from its succulent flavor to its generous yields. Bred specifically for maximum flavor, the taste is sweet yet meaty, with more solids and less gel than other varieties, despite its 12- to 16-ounce size. This is the tomato to grow for fresh tomato sandwiches and salads. Because the vines are indeterminate, production is quite heavy. The globe-shaped tomatoes are gorgeous, with deep red skin and smooth shoulders (thanks to uniform ripening). Cage or stake this main-season variety to support all of its bounty.
