OH This seed was given to us by our friend and gardener Chris Lloyd who brought it back through MPI channels in 2015 from Bulgaria. At that time this seed was banned from commercial production in the EU and could only be bought by small scale Bulgarian producers. They are an oxheart heritage tomato but with the distinctive heart shape that most oxhearts no longer have. This tomato is beautifully heart shaped, large, pink, and dense with few seeds, but still juicy and sweet to eat. Such a good saucing variety to grow and very big, some fruit weighing up to 700g-1kg! Indeterminate.
Sow in August into trays in a glasshouse. Keep soil temp at 18-20°C for ideal germination. Prick out when true leaves appear to 4cm diagonal spacing. Pot on to small pots to further develop roots. Transplant after last frost to 40cm diagonal spacing into fertile ground in direct sun. Stake and de-lateral as needed.
