Beefsteak Tomatoes

Classic home-grown taste

When you’re hankering for a sandwich, the best type of tomato you can add to make your first bite a success are NatureSweet Beefsteak Tomatoes! Perfect for slicin’ and dicin’, beefsteak are one of the most versatile ‘matoes out there. We love beefsteak tomatoes for their large, sturdy, and firm shape which is perfect for when being thinly sliced.

Chock full of nutrients, beefsteak tomatoes are not only yummy, but they’re good for you. In fact, just one large-sized NatureSweet beefsteak serves up 2 grams of fiber, and 28% of your Daily Value (DV) for vitamin C, plus they’re low fat with only 33 calories.

Like all of our tomatoes, NatureSweet beefsteaks are 100% greenhouse-grown for year-round availability and delicious flavor you can rely on winter, spring, summer or fall. We also plant in coconut husks to decrease our footprint and give Mother Nature a well-deserved break. Our growing process helps conserve water, our most precious resource!
