80 days. 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.

What are the pros? taste, size, form, yield

What are the cons? late

Review:

This is the best tasting paste I've found so far and I've tried hundreds of tomatoes. This is a BIG plant with BIG tomatoes so if you want a good yield from it, you're going to have to have some really good sun. If this goes in a shaded spot, it's going to look nice, but don't expect tomatoes. The more sun you provide, the higher the yield. It is definitely a paste type, but doesn't have the blandness that often goes with paste varieties. It's sweet. Form is very good as well though there will occasionally be some very minor cracking. Biggest problem with this tomato is given the size, it's going to be very late. It's worth the wait though, and they seem to hold well on the vine once they're ripe. Mine are easily over a pound, and if I bothered to check, there are probably some around 2 lbs.

Review:

These are our absolute favorite tomatoes of all time. Big, juicy, tasty. Have raised these for years but couldn't get seeds this year. They were sorely missed. I'm ordering early and plan on saving seeds. Excellent flavor canned as well as fresh.

Review:

First year growing. Grew in an earth box. Choked out other tomato vine it was so large. Beautiful taste and shape of fruit. I had to feed it every week to make it produce fruit in a closed growing system. Very thirsty. Used Fox Farm Big Bloom fertilizer to push blooms and fruiting. It worked pretty well. Got 12 HUGE tomatoes. Vines very healthy throughout growing season. Tomatoes took a very long time to ripen, but worth the wait. I would recommend if you have the room to grow it. Make sure you have a sturdy staking system as this plant will easily grow 7 feet high and have very full foliage!

What are the pros? Very Large, Little Cracking

What are the cons? None

Review:

I only grew one plant of this variety as it was new to our garden this year. While it was not an Oxheart shape, just a large round beefsteak-type, it was solid, bright red and very little cracking. People that visited my garden could not believe how large they grew. Most we well over 1 lb, close to 1.5 lbs. Beautiful. We will grow again.

Review:

This is my first year growing these tomatoes. I have one plant from seeds purchased 2 years ago (the others died in an unexpected freeze). The seedlings grew vigorously despite their age, and one even had a potato leaf variation. I only picked 4 tomatoes off this plant and lost 2 more to birds, but the tomatoes were over a pound each. Absolutely huge and very solid. Not many seed and very little gel, and the slices were big enough to cover my sandwich single-handedly. Very rich flavor, not too sweet or tart. Despite only producing 6 tomatoes, this variety was easy and tasty enough to earn a permanent position in my garden.
