Anybody heard of this tomato? In appearance it's shaped and similar in size to Orange Strawberry. It's kinda heart shaped 10 oz- 1lb in weight. The foliage is pretty thin and wispy looking. Very dense tomato with few seeds per fruit (considering its size)
Long story short. I grew this tomato 7/8 years ago, loved it and carefully saved seeds. Can't find my notes on where (from whom) I received the seeds. (the year after this seed was saved I began writing the notes on the packet) Any input you might have, or if this sounds familiar please let me know.
I know I received it in trade at some point before 2002 because that's the date of the seed I saved. You could be correct that someone named it for a family member. Or, someone named Mark H shared the seed and the variety is actually something more familiar.
At least I learned the name of the shape, the picture of "Homers German ox heart" I saw on this forum a minute ago, has the same shape and the color is very like what I'm growing as well. The average size of this one is closer to 1/2 pound.
Carolyn, Thank you for taking the time to try for an answer.
Okay. No further info at all, so I'll let it go. Thanks for trying. It was just hope. If it continues to plague me, eventually I'll have enough seed saved to share with several people hoping to match it to a known variety.
