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 Red Heart Tomato
Organic Red Heart Tomato (79 days)
25 heirloom tomato seeds per pkg
Introduce by Gill's Seed Company Portland, OR in 1939
1939 catalog says...
"We now introduce a tomato with flesh the deepest red in color yet found. One that is heavy bearing, long keeping, globe shaped. It is sure to be a valuable shipping and canning variety. Fruits picked entirely green will develop into ripe fruits of excellent qualitya and bright blood red when cut."
In our field test we found a great deal of variation in this seed line, but wanted to release it since eveyone was impressed with the flavor at the farm. It is meaty and sweet. Borne in clusters of 4. Good production. We will continue to improve this line.
