Orange Russian 117 (bi-color oxheart tomato)
Size: Medium to Large
One of our long-time favorites. Bred by Jeff Dawson in the mid 90s from a cross between Russian 117 and Georgia Streak. Heirloom, regular-leaf plants produce beautiful 8-16 oz, heart-shaped, yellow-orange with a pink blush tomatoes. Very meaty flesh with few seeds. This is one of the prettiest tomatoes around. Terrific flavor is well balanced and complex. Great for sauces, salads and sandwiches. Plant has an indeterminate growth habit (needs a tall tomato cage). A good sub, if sold out, is Gold Medal or Northern Lights (although these are not oxhearts; they are bi-color beauties).
