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 pros? Delicious, huge, very meaty.

What are the cons? Takes longer to ripen.

Review:

We will never grow tomatoes again without including this monster. It was my husband's favorite, and he considers himself quite the tomato connoisseur. Obviously, they take a longer to ripen, but almost all of the tomatoes I harvested came in over a pound EACH! We planted 5 plants and I ended up with 44 pounds at the end of the year. It likely would have been way higher, but 2018 was not a good year for tomatoes in my area. Big fungus problems and still got massive fruits and lost some to ants at the end of the season. They are gorgeous and we are at least doubling the amount of plants we put in for 2019. Starting them next month! So excited!

Review:

Last day of summer. First Hungarian Heart tomato. Now that I'm tasting the fruit of my labor I have softened my opinion of this one. These are sweet! She was tall and lanky even in March when she first emerged. First one to run up to the plant light and actually scorch herself outta nowhere. Her stem is nearly vine like. If I were to measure her its probably 7 feet long with lots of very heavy tomatoes and she's climbed on top of her neighbor's and then flopped on the ground next to them where she finally got all the sun she craved. She took forever to flower and I can't tell you how many times I almost yanked her out. But that one tomato probably would have cost the price of seeds, had I purchased it in a store. It is so heavy and solid. You could eat it like an apple and keep your clothes dry. I do recommend them if you want to do fall canning or live in a place with a long growing season and lots of heat. If you only have space for 10 plants, be advised, this one wont be early.

What are the pros? Nostalgia

What are the cons? Bad self-pollination

Review:

I remember this tomato from my childhood in Russia. My parents treasured their tomato seeds and this or a similar oxen heart was always a staple. This was my second year to grow tomatoes in the US in my backyard and I happily purchased a bunch of seeds including this one. The plants grew well and yielded a lot of flowers, but even though I lightly stressed the branches to induce pollination and added P and K fertilizer to the soil, only 5 fruits set and other flowers simply fell off. It takes a long time for the fruits to ripen. I am still waiting to taste them. They are huge and I understand the plant has to "carry them to the term". I am just a little upset that these tomatoes grow side by side with black vernissage tomatoes (which I do not like the taste or the texture), and they produce fruit like there is no tomorrow and my oxen hearts don't. I will try them next year with some mason bees. Will see if the situation improves.

What are the pros? Enormous, very meaty

What are the cons? None

Review:

The things are huuuuuge. I had to give it a 3 on the "early maturing" star rating, but I didn't expect any less with such a big tomato. Every one so far has been over a pound and nearly solid meat all the way through. Really good tomato flavor but not too acidic. I will be growing these every year.
