Reportedly the original seeds were brought over by immigrants who came to the USA to work in the cement plant in Hannibal, Missouri sometime between 1900s and 1950s. Said to be grown at the cement plant. First offered in the Seed Savers 2004 Yearbook by Albert Beck of Monroe City, Missouri, who got the seeds from Arnold Hart, Hannibal, Missouri. Introduced commercially by Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds in 2015. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce 10-12 oz., large, red fruits that are slightly oval (heart-shaped?) in shape, very good tomato flavor.
