    I am looking for Cuore di Bue. Is that simply the Italian name for Coeur de Boeuff Nice? They don't quite fit my image.

      Hi Dena, there is many different strains with this or similar name. Those are heart-shaped tomatoes, with meaty flesh and very few seeds. Please feel free to check some of the heart-shaped tomatoes in our database:
