Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Homers German Oxheart Tomato
Organic Homer’s German Oxheart Tomato (86 days)
Approx. 25 heirloom seeds
An old Amish heirloom that is extremley uncommon these days.
Huge oxheart fruits some weighing 1-1 1/2 pounds.
This is the biggest oxheart we carry.
The color is pink-red with some green shoulders common.
Large vines produce a heavy crop.
Makes a GREAT sauce or great eaten fresh.
We were super impressed with the sauce from this tomato. It's sweet and savory, but the tomatoes are big so you don't need as many like the smaller roma types. We found ourselves just picking what we needed for the night to make simple, but delicious sauces. Most of the time that meant only 4-5 tomatoes.
