Beauty in My Eye

Yes. It's RED. Yes. It is a beautiful sight! Yes. It is the last of my gifts of the Oxhearts. Yes. It will not disappoint when we have lunch today. The flavor is like no other tomato. The meat is dense and juicy. This beauty will give seeds to continue on the propagation of this treasured variety. It almost hurt to slice it in half. Almost. It was a pleasure to reap the few seeds it produced. They are special. Believe me. After fermenting in their own juice for about 10 days, they will be dried, saved in a paper envelope and put in a pill bottle to go into the freezer until next spring. YAY!

  1. I’m so jealous. My tomatoes fizzled out. I didn’t grow one much less the beauty you got. This is the first year I did so badly

  2. There is nothing like a garden tomato in summer! My gramma raised oxhearts! They are delish! Good luck with the seeds...

  3. Beauty ! I got 52 tomatoes growing on my balcony but none so beautiful as those !!❣
