Answer: There's nice new beefsteak-type hybrid available called 'Big Beef' that's disease resistant and very productive. Also, 'Better Boy' is another large-fruited variety. Another nice heirloom, 'Brandywine' is available as transplants from Burpee. You can mix old potting soil into your garden without any concerns. The roots won't sprout up again this year.
