Product Information

Oxheart tomatoes are a large, old-fashioned, heirloom or heritage type tomatoes that have come back into fashion because they are fragrant and sweet, making them an excellent addition to many dishes. So called because of their heart-like shape, one of the things that makes oxheart tomatoes so popular is their size, large specimens can weigh up to a pound, which means there is a great deal of tomato to go around. Easy to grow, it usually takes around 80 days for tomatoes to be produced on oxheart tomato plants. They are indeterminate type tomatoes, (they continue to grow and produce fruit until killed by frost) and the sprawling plants need support. The plants can get as tall as 10 feet, thought most reach only 6 feet. Plants have fern-like foliage and can also be grown in pots, either indoors or outdoors, growing indoors greatly extends their growing season. Oxheart tomatoes need full sun, well-drained soil and lots of fertilizer. They prefer soil with a relatively neutral pH. Before you plant your tomatoes, add a good general purpose fertilizer to the soil. After planting, apply .5 kilos per 10 square metres and work it well into the upper 15cm of soil. Tomato Oxheart Malinowy Bawole Serce is a tall variety with unusually large, tough raspberry coloured fruit with excellent flavour. Needs support. This type of tomato is prized by both gardeners and food-lovers.
