80 days. Brilliant reddish-pink oxheart type fruits are large—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? Germinated fast. Heavy Tomatoe

What are the cons? Really tested my patience.

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.

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

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.

Review:

I started growing the Hungarian Heart two years ago just south of Seattle (Zone 7b) and this has quickly become my favorite variety! I do a lot of canning during the fall, including a variety of uses for tomatoes, and this has been an excellent producer for me. I start my seeds indoors in February, move them to a greenhouse for a month or two, and then transplant in my garden, and this variety grows very well right from the start. As an indeterminate, it can grow very large if you give it enough space - last year my largest plant was about 8 feet tall and four feet in diameter. It produces a very large number of huge fruit, especially when placed in an especially hot area. My largest tomato ever was a Hungarian Heart, and it came in at almost two pounds!! I highly recommend this tomato for people who like to make their own tomato sauces!

Review:

I tried this variety out in 2016 and was wowed. The fruit is gorgeous, many heart shaped. And huge! The flavor is wonderful and they are very meaty with few seeds. I grew again in 2017 and had another fantastic crop. It is now my go-to tomato for fresh eating, canning and sauces.
