About Coeur de Boeuf de Nice

‘Coeur de Boeuf de Nice’ is an heirloom tomato from Nice, France. Medium size (6-11 oz.), red, slightly ribbed pear-shaped fruit with very dense, meaty flesh and a small amount of gel and seed. Sometimes partially empty seed chambers. Delicious, old-fashioned tomato taste. Perfect for cooking, canning, and for fresh. Indeterminate, regular-leaf plants are very prolific. Mid-season, about 80 days to maturity.

    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:
