80 days. OP. Indet. Heirloom. Vigorous vine produces big bunches of huge pink tomatoes which are oxheart shaped, meaty, and have fantastic flavor. The tomatoes are relativley dry and have few seeds - perfect for processing. But also great on a sandwich due to its superb flavor - a good balance of sweet and acid. The plant is unlike other oxheart tomatoes. It is sturdy, not wispy, and has plenty of foliage. Seed was given to us by our mailman, Mark Barton.He has been preserving this variety for years. He was given the seed by Joe Cockman, who had grown the variety here in the Ozarks for many years after receiving seeds from Dan Turner, who used to sell the tomatoes at the Farmer's Market here in Alton over 60 years ago. No one now knows what the original name was, so we call it "Joe's Pink."Oxheart."
