70 days. This Oxheart type Italian heirloom has been a favorite in Italy for many years. Beautiful 12-oz. fruit have a delicious sweet taste; similar to the shape of a heart; great for fresh eating or cooking. Large vigorous vines. Hard to find.

What are the pros? One plant yielded hundreds

What are the cons? None

Review:

My seedlings were spindly due to my inexperience but I planted the survivors in some mushroom mulching soil and one plant turned into a gargantaplant of about 8' x 8" and yielded hundreds of beautiful heart shaped pink meaty tomatoes. It just kept growing and growing and putting out more fruit. I am not exaggerating when I say this plant was monstrous. I wish I could share the picture with you.

What are the pros? delicious flavor large fruit

What are the cons? vines are heat sensitive

Review:

These tomatoes are far more beautiful than the picture suggests. They look like giant orange-red apples and provide a nice contrast to the brandywines and black tomatoes in the rest of my garden. The taste is superb as well in a truly Italian way. The meaty fruit is excellent for making recipes like bruschetta, where you don't want to much excess liquid and seeds. The interior of the Cour di Bue looks like a beefsteak, with multiple small seed cavities surrounded by a majority of walls.

What are the pros? rich and meaty

What are the cons? shoulders stay green when ripe

Review:

Great success with this tomato - toughed out an unexpected cold snap that took it to the ground, and it came back from the roots! It was worth it, as the fruits are thick, with very little "jelly" and great umami richness. The "phoenix" plant ended up bearing lbs of medium-sized fruit all the way past other varieties, up until late blight got it in August. Definitely on my "forever" list!

Best Yielding Tomato I Grow

What are the pros? great yield, canning, flavor

What are the cons? yellow shoulder

Review:

I have grown this variety for 4 years in a row. Every year this is my first to ripen and my last to stop producing. The tomatoes are huge and meaty. I've had a few at 2 lbs and every year many over 1 lb but most over or around hald of a lb. These tomatoes come in all shapes and sizes, from heart shaped, round, typical heirloom shape.This makes the best flavored sauce. This year I have already picked 170 lbs from 6 plants and they are still producing. They are also tasty for salsa or slicing. After growing these for 4 years I've found the plants seem to be prone to yellow shoulder and blossom end rot. Just make sure to fertilize through out the growing season and add extra epsom salt.

What are the pros? Flavor, texture, abundance

What are the cons? none

Review:

We had a backyard garden this year including a few varieties of organic heirloom tomatoes. The season was quite dry with a longer lasting heat for MA. These beauties grew abundantly with meaty texture and sweet fresh tomatoes flavor. I will surely look for seeds for next year. It was a favorite in this family. Good for salsa, canning and particularly delicious straight off the vine. Luckily, the groundhog, chipmiunks and squirrel left this variety alone.
