About Anthony’s Passionate Heart

Anthony Bourdain (1956-2018), was an American celebrity chef, author, and television personality who explored the cuisines, culture, joys and essentials of human existence around the world. He was an icon to many who love food and cooking as a most enjoyable way of gathering people together to celebrate our humanity.
Tomato Fest wanted to pay tribute to Anthony Bourdain’s life by honoring his legacy with “Anthony’s Passionate Heart”‘, a tomato heretofore unknown, that Tomato Fest have identified as particularly outstanding for its excellent flavors and beautiful, heart-shaped appearance. Tomato Fest found it suitable that “the world’s most popular fruit,” a tomato, would carry Tony’s name through future generations in a way that would enrich the lives of many.
This tomato was created by respected tomato breeder and friend, Jeff Dawson, from a crossing between “Sungold” and “Amish Paste.” This cross yielded the “Amish Red” which over time threw off a slicer, “Red Buddha,” and this red oxheart. After seven years of stabilization it has consistently produced 1 lb. tomatoes with bold, fruity-sweet flavors and sufficient acidity for perfect balance.
