OXHEART PINK TOMATO (80 days) (HEIRLOOM)

HEIRLOOM 1925 Indeterminate. Per James Vicks seeds 1936 catalog, "A very large tomato rounded at the stem end but tapering to a point, and averaging 1-1/2 pounds in weight. As it becomes better known the demand for seed is constantly increasing. Skin-purplish pink, flavor-luscious sub-acid; very meaty and almost seedless. Size, shape, flavor, and productiveness make this variety very popular." 25 seeds.

PLANTING:

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest- When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.
