Don't you love this photo of one of our seed savers group, hugging her tomatoes?


Thanks for sending it to me, Sam.

Hi Sam
How the heck did you grow those great tomatoes in this lousy weather?
Are they Ox-hearts?
Cheers and well-done!

Ah well .. we have the well, and we live in the hills which makes it cooler but I believe the most important thing I did was spray with wettable sulphur every fortnight from planting. They are russet mite free! Touch wood.

Yes they are ox hearts. Its a wonderful tomato. Fleshy without being mealy and make wonderful sauce so a couple of these makes a substitute for a can of tomatoes.
