German Red Strawberry (oxheart tomato)
This German heirloom produces large, red, heart-shaped tomatoes that look like an extra-large strawberry. Plants yield an abundance of meaty, 3-inch wide by 3 1/2-inch long fruit that can grow to 1 pound. Shape of tomatoes can be inconsistent, but do tend to produce a nice point on the bottom. Copious amount of delicious, robust, "old-tomato" flavors with a lingering sweetness. A perfect tomato for slicing onto sandwiches. We love oxheart-type tomatoes because they do double-duty as both slicers and sauce tomatoes, due to their scant seed and excellent meatiness. Plant has an indeterminate growth habit (needs a tall tomato cage). A good sub, if sold out, is Sexy Beast.
