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.


RE: Heart In Hand

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.

RE: Heart In Hand

that is one beautiful tomato.....!

RE: Heart In Hand

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