Giant Red Oxheart

About Giant Red Oxheart

A Kentucky heirloom. Seeds sent to Gary Ibsen in 2015 from Dennis Dailey, KY. who received the seeds from “a man who received the seeds from his great grandparents, who has grown them throughout his life, and has no heirs to pass the seeds to. He wanted to leave seeds for someone who would continue to grow them.” He reported that Giant Red Oxheart has been growing on Webb Ridge, near Olive Hill, KY for more than 100 years and was one of his family’s two tomatoes. With the seeds Dennis attached the message, “Please spread these. They are amazing, delicious and beautiful.” He then requested that we share these seeds, “with your best growers.” Indeterminate, regular leaf plant that produces good crops of huge, 1-2 lbs., red, oxheart tomatoes with full, delicious flavors.
