Best Buy beefsteak tomatoes
Beefsteak tomatoes grow best in a greenhouse or polytunnel as they love warmth.
Which? Gardening grew and tasted 16 varieties to find the best ones for growing in the UK. All our Best Buys scored highly for both yield and flavour.
How we test beefsteak tomatoes
We grew 16 varieties of beefsteak tomatoes in a large greenhouse. We grew six plants of each variety - three plants per growing bag. They were watered with a drip-irrigation system and fed with a Best Buy tomato feed. The plants were trained as cordons up stout strings and stopped when they reached 2.4m high.
The ripe fruit was picked weekly, weighed and assessed, and in late August a sample of each variety was sent for taste testing. Three expert tasters scored each variety for appearance, aroma, taste and texture, and describe each attribute.
