Japanese Oxheart

About Japanese Oxheart

As with most oxhearts, you can expect some lazy, fern-like foliage on this variety. Meaty fruit can range between 10 oz and 1.5 pounds with few seeds. Japanese Oxheart distinguishes itself from the rest with a richer flavor than most pink varietals. High yields make this quite the sought-after variety for home gardeners. It was first offered by Åke Truedsson of Klagshamn, Sweden in the Seed Savers Exchange 1993 Yearbook.
Prolific leafy plant producing 2 1/2 to 3-inch jade pink heart-shaped fruits, firm, thin skin with thick, juicy flesh. Great slicer.
