Dr. Carolyn Male describes the shape of this tomato like "the top of a Russian Orthodox church dome." This famous heirloom is popular for good reason. The large, pink fruits weigh up to one pound, and they are produced in abundance. They have a fantastic, sweet and juicy flavor that is unique to heart-shaped tomatoes. One of our all-time favorites.
Because of the wispy, drooping foliage, my husband kept asking if the plants were dying. No, it's just how this variety looks. Don't worry. Be happy!
