Oxheart tomato plants have been grown in this country for many years but are relatively unknown to younger gardeners. This variety is called Bull's Heart and it may be the best tasting tomato of all. Their deep pink heart-shaped fruits have a sweet, rich, complex flavor and are very meaty while still being juicy. Production is excellent and the tomatoes are simply beautiful, but it is the intense tomato flavor that really makes this one special. These Oxheart tomatoes vary between 12 to 14 ozs. Indeterminate. 85 days

Growing Tomatoes requires a few basic things for success:

  • ·        Planting after your last frost date in Spring

   Oxheart endorsement, October 7, 2018  By Renee (Sacramento, CA)
2nd year with this variety, last year someone gave me tomatoes from their garden. These tomatoes are the meatiest, densest I have ever encountered. Low seeds, peelable by hand when fully ripe and late but long producing, still picking in October, planted in April.

Some fruits in the 16-24 ounce range.

Flavor is good, maybe not excellent, beautiful color pink to red when fully ripe.

One plant has been producing more that 5# of tomatoes/week for the last 6 weeks.
Remarkable and will be planted again.
