Heirloom giant orange beefsteak
Days to Maturity: 80 from transplant
Recently named one of the best heirloom tomatoes by the food editors of Sunset Magazine, Kellogg’s Breakfast is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Originally bred in Michigan by a gardener named Kellogg, it is absolutely unique, both for its size and for its bold golden skin and juice, exactly the color of fresh-squeezed orange juice.
This giant sets fruit weighing anywhere from 16 to 32 ounces. Slightly flattened, the globes are massive, hanging over the edges of sandwich bread. A good mix of solids and gels makes for a delicious bite, and you’ll need many, many bites to finish just one Kellogg’s Breakfast.
Our certified organic seed ensures that you are growing nothing but pure tomato goodness. Kellogg’s Breakfast is an indeterminate plant, meaning that it keeps growing all summer and setting new fruit as it grows. You will definitely want to cage or stake this vine, and probably provide a bit of support for those huge tomatoes as they ripen to perfection. Enjoy this American-bred beauty all season long.
Plant seedlings outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 feet apart.
