Hearts

Old fashioned oxheart tomatoes, commonly referred to as hearts, tend to have the following characteristics:

Fruits are heart – or strawberry – shaped.

Flesh is meaty and solid with few seeds.

Plants tend to have wispy leaves, almost fern like and look like they are drooping. Please do not think they are dying and pull them. The droopy leaves are due to a gene common to hearts, the wilt leaf gene. They will grow fine and produce plenty of fruit. Plants also are indeterminate and of a sprawling habit that will produce continuously until frost.

Because of their thick meaty flesh, they are excellent used in sauces and canning but most have enough juice that they are wonderful for slicing and fresh eating. A true multi purpose tomato.
