Ukrainian Heart (TNMUJ Strain) is an outstanding tomato! It is a large, pink heart with a creamy, dense, meaty texture. The flavor is very subtle, but complex, with the perfect balance of acid to sweet. Like most oxhearts, it has very few seeds. The plant is large and sprawling. It produces a respectable crop starting mid-late season. I didn't have any problems with disease. Ukrainian Heart definitely has earned a spot in my garden.
