Monomakh's Hat is another great pink oxheart. It has a well-balanced flavor and a meaty texture. MH was one of the first to ripen in my garden. I would highly recommend.

Positive Suze_ On Apr 3, 2007, Suze_ from (Zone 7b) wrote:

Early-mid to midseason, compact indet, reg leaf plant with that sort of droopy foliage that many heart types tend to have. 8-14 oz pink fruit with a sort of topped heart shape. Named after famous crown-hat with diamonds by Russian Tsars. Siberian variety.

Great flavor, I will definitely grow again. Extremely productive. On the early side for a heart, was about a week earlier than Anna Russian in my '07 spring garden.
