An Italialn heirloom known as 'Cuore Di Bue' or "pear of Liguria". These are a sauce tomato with a distinctive heart shape, red, ribbed, and with very few seeds. Try 'Oxheart' tomatoes roasted for a real taste treat. Indeterminate, 70-85 days from transplanting. Tomatoes are a warm season crop and must be started ahead of time indoors in late March/early April. Plant them out after all danger of frost has past. Be sure to note whether they are determinate (bushy) or indeterminate (vining) and provide proper support. Natureworks recommends our heavy duty tomato cages that fold flat for storage.
