Fresh Grocer: Beefsteak Tomatoes

BOSTON (CBS) – Small, green, future tomatoes may just be starting to peek through in your garden.

But they’re in top form at the grocery store.

Today, our Fresh Grocer, Tony Tantillo shows you how to pick the best beefsteaks.

Watch The Fresh Grocer

Beefsteak tomatoes are large, bright red, and slightly elliptical in shape.

They are considered the workhorse of the mainstream tomato market, and are delicious cooked or sliced up for sandwiches or cut into wedges for salads.

You can watch the Fresh Grocer every weekday at noon on WBZ-TV.
