Caspian Pink Beefsteak

Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

80 Days to Harvest 

10-12 oz fruit (size of a big fist)

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


A tomato variety originally from southern Russia near the Caspian Sea that emigrated to the states after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It’s a nice sized beefsteak type that has fantastic flavor that can be used for just about anything, but is ideal for big sandwich slices. It is also well adapted to cooler regions (like New England).


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
