The Seed Savers Exchange - First listed in the 1991 SSE Yearbook by Jerry Muller of Alabama. He acquired the variety in 1988 from Ed Simon of Pennsylvania. Simon stated it was brought to the United States in 1901 from a village 20 miles from Budapest. Huge pink oxheart fruits weigh upwards of one pound. Very few seeds and almost no cracking. One of our favorites for fresh eating, canning, and making roasted tomato sauce. Indeterminate, 85 days from transplant. ±14,300 seeds/oz.
