80 days. Brilliant reddish-pink oxheart type fruit is large—frequently exceeding one pound! The fruit of this heirloom is firm and meaty like all oxheart types—great for paste, canning or fresh use. The crack-resistant fruit contains 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 cons? Sour,hard to ripen properly

Review:

Zone 6a. Planted 8 plants. They definitely are a meaty tomato but they don't ripen to a sweet red very easily & they start to crack & rot b4 they even start turning red, so you kind of have to pick them pink. But if you pick them pink, they're VERY sour, very much like the junk tomatoes you buy in a grocery store, although they do have a pungent tomato flavor, unlike store tomatoes. This sourness makes them hard to eat whole & are terrible for puree - it makes a sour puree. That's too bad, because they would be perfect for puree due to their meatiness. I ended up wasting about 3/4 of each tomato I picked. I would let them go partially red then only use the red parts in my puree. I will try them again next year, but only a couple as I do realize it could've been the season or something I did wrong. BTW: These tomatoes can grow pretty large. My biggest one was 2 lbs. 5 oz. and at least 4 others at 1.25lbs. I did not expect this. Not a bad thing, just unexpected.

Review:

I am amazed at how many tomatoes are growing on these plants. I've had several hit 2lbs! They're a flavorful and meaty tomato. I think they have a perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. They're nice for canning or slicing. I staked the plants, but I'm thinking next year I'll need to use a cattle panep, because the plants were so loaded down that the wooden tomato stake snapped in half. On average, I've gotten about 15-20 nice sized tomatoes from each plant, and they're still producing.

Review:

My first tomato was 1lb 11oz the second 14oz. I used them to make a sauce for my zucchini lasagna. At first I was just going to cut one up and add it to a jar of sauce, along with a yellow pepper and onion. but on tasting the tomato decided it would be great by its self as a sauce with a jar of tomato paste to thicken and skipped the jar sauce. Will defiantly be growing again next year. This is one of my favorite tomatoes if tried. Would not take too many to make sauce. They are sweet but not too sweet, just delicious.
