A beefsteak tomato (also spelled beef steak tomatoes) is a type of tomato that produces giant fruits. Most are indeterminate tomatoes which will require staking. Some are heirloom or heritage tomatoes. Others are modern hybrids.

Most of these are indeterminate tomatoes which will grow until cut down by frost. They need sturdy, tall tomato supports to hold up the enormous fruits.

A tomato trellis or a tall tomato ladder will provide better support than the average tomato cage.

How to Stake Tomatoes will give you instructions for putting up an inexpensive tomato trellis.

Giant tomatoes need to receive even moisture throughout the growing season in order to keep them from cracking. Watering Tomatoes gives greater detail on this.
