Cuore di Bue tomato

/KWOH-reh dee BOO-eh/

Oxheart tomato. A variety of indeterminate tomato which produces large, deep rose-pink, ox heart-shaped fruit with very few seeds. The fruits have shallow furrows which are born in clusters of 2-7. The flesh is meaty and firm and has a mild flavour. The shape resulted from a single gene mutation and is now synonymous with a separate tomato-type. It was first commercially available in 1925. Good for slicing or in sauces.
