TOMATO – OXHEART RED
Tomato – Oxheart Red
An old favorite! This large, fleshy tomato matures mid-season with smooth firm fruit. Tasty to eat, Oxheart requires staking. Tomatoes grow well in light or heavy soils but you will obtain better results if you add organic matter, some pre-planting fertilizer and the chosen site has good drainage.
Sow in a good mix of soil and lightly cover – keep moist but not wet. Transplant when seedlings achieve 3-4 leaves.
Known as old-fashioned “Bullock Heart” if you’re in Queensland, or “Ox Heart” in NSW & the rest of Australia. Taken from a transmission on ABC gardening show South Queensland
