Amber - Hearts are my absolute favorites! Is that Orange 117? If it is is one of the best.
I use them to make a tomato sauce, I like them better than paste tomatoes because they are rich and meaty. I just made some this morning because they don't have a long shelf life like other tomatoes.
I am growing this season German Red Strawberry, Monokahs Hat, Anna Russian and Brad's Blackheart.
I have visitors this week and I will be making pumpkin/sausage lasagna with the hearts tomato sauce.

You have a good eye for tomatoes Silvia. It is indeed Orange 117. I've only grown one other heart tomato, Marek's Pointy Heart, and I really liked that one too. They are very large. I have seeds set aside to grow German Red Strawberry and Brad's Blackheart in the future. Maybe I'll grow both next season.

WOW! Nice tomato! I've never heard of hearts. Maybe I'll try some too.
