Plant Information
Introduced around 1925, the Oxheart tomato is an old favorite that's loved for its unique heart shape and pinkish red skin. The vining plants perform best when staked for support, allowing them to grow upward and bear the largest fruits. Oxheart tomatoes grow in clusters and are normally around 6-8 ounces when mature, but some can grow as large as a pound or more. A fine slicing variety that's also stellar for salads, sauces, and canning, their flesh is dense and meaty with very few seeds and has a robust tomato flavor. Like all tomatoes, Oxheart tomatoes are powerhouses when it comes to containing many healthy nutrients, the most notable of which is lycopene. Of all vegetables, tomatoes have the highest concentration of this beneficial antioxidant, which has been found to promote cardiovascular health, aid in the prevention and treatment of cancer, and help maintain healthy eyesight.
