Ox-Heart Shaped Tomatoes


Hungarian Heart (Heirloom)

Brilliant reddish-pink oxheart type fruits are enormous—frequently exceeding one pound! The fruits of this heirloom are firm and meaty like all oxheart types—great for paste, canning or fresh use. The crack-resistant fruits contain very few seeds and show very little tendency to develop cores—just rich tasting, solid flesh across each hefty slice! Heavy production all season long. Originated outside of Budapest, Hungary around 1900.

80 Days.  Indeterminate.



Orange Strawberry (Heirloom)
A vigorous, ox-heart variety producing small to medium yields of beautiful, 3-inch, strawberry-shaped (formed to a distinct tip), bright-orange fruits (inside and out). The gorgeous, meaty fruit has a sweet, rich, complex taste unlike most yellow and orange tomatoes.

85 Days.  Indeterminate.


Anna Russian

Anna Russian (Heirloom)
An heirloom oxheart variety from Brenda Hillenius, of Oregon, who got from her grandfather, Kenneth Wilcox, who received seeds from a Russian immigrant. An excellent, gorgeous tomato. Early maturing for a heart-shaped tomato, the large, visually beautiful, pink-red fruit normally weighs about 1 pound. Superb rich old-fashioned, “tomatoey” flavors with lots of juice.
