50 Hogheart Paste Tomato seeds, USDA Organic
(86 days) Open-pollinated. Indeterminate.
Brought from Italy to Massachusetts, probably between 1910 and 1920. So-named because it sometimes produces large heart-shaped double fruits. Elisabeth Benjamin grew a triple in 2013 that weighed 3 lb 7 oz! More often, though, its 6–8 oz tomatoes are shaped like banana peppers.
A meaty paste tomato noted for its sparse seed cavity, good solids and excellent flavor fresh, canned or frozen.
