We bought a Coeur d' Boeuf in the South of France some years ago. This is a ribbed, somewhat oblate fruit that is medium to large and a great slicer for BLT sandwiches.

I brought seeds home and we've grown this tomato for nine seasons, it's our favorite. It ripens from the inside out and can be picked and stored when still pink. We prefer to ripen on the vine to bright red. It bears heavily until frost. On 6/13/13 our plants were over 7' and have had ripe fruit since May 28 (planted mid-March).

Seeds are available on the internet. In Italy its called Coure di Bue (same translation) and some nurseries are selling it as Goldman's Italian Tomato, They are all the same and very popular in Europe.
