Backyard Farms puts Beefsteak Tomato in the spotlight

It’s the porterhouse of the tomato family with a flavour profile that’s as big as its size. Juicy, meaty and sweet, the Beefsteak Tomato is one of the four varieties Backyard Farms grows all year long in their greenhouse.

Unlike their Tomatoes on the Vine and Cocktail Tomatoes that are both picked in full clusters, Beefsteak Tomatoes are picked from their clusters one at a time. Every Beefsteak in the cluster is able to grow big, plump and juicy, and each one is picked at just the right time.

How to eat the Beef

Weighing in at about half a pound, they develop a big meaty texture while growing red and ripe on the vine. Sure, you could eat them like an apple (this is actually the preferred method for many of the growers), but the Beefsteaks are typically sliced and ready to compliment many dishes.

Sandwiches love Beefsteaks. The slices cover the entire width of the bread, adding a fresh, juicy flavor to every bite. One of our favourites? A slice of a Beef, basil, mozzarella and chicken served between two fresh slices ciabatta.

But that’s just the beginning! The Margherita Pizza: can you think of a better tomato than Beefs for this? Or how about tomatoes for breakfast with a Breakfast Pizza: served with a sunny-side-up egg and fresh herb pesto.

Anyway you slice it, the Beefsteak Tomato delivers a rich, juicy flavour to every meal. It’s a healthy treat (there’s 42% of your daily Vitamin C in just one Beefsteak!) that’s delicious at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
