Positive SLO_Garden On Sep 12, 2010, SLO_Garden from San Luis Obispo, CA wrote:

Kosovo is a nice tomato. It is large, pink, and somewhat juicy for an oxheart. The flavor is really good and well balanced. The plant is large with wispy foliage. It didn't start producing until really late in the season for me, but it may be because we had an unseasonably cool summer. Yields are moderate. No problems with disease. I'd definitely recommend Kosovo.

Great taste on a very early and productive heart. Fair disease tolerance and seems to be setting fruit good in the heat. One of my new favorites.

Great flavor in a nice sized tomato. Kosovo has an intense 'tomatoey' flavor. It's not a tart tomato, instead, having the wonderful taste and aroma of the pink cultivars.

The depth of the flavor is deep and full-bodied. One to remember.

The wispy vines are typical of the heart shaped vareties, but Kosovo produces a good number of fruits for a heart, many over a pound in size.

I give it an ' A'.

Great balanced flavor, very meaty. Large fruits for an early-mid variety -- I've picked four fruits so far this season and all were a lb. or more. Still plenty of developing fruits on the vine as well. I'll definitely be growing this one again.

Slightly willowy growth, 6 to 8 feet high, pink, fleshy, slicer-type fruit. Heart, double-heart, and large flat shaped fruit all on the same plant averaging one to two pounds in weight. Very tasty. Very early for such large fruits.
