Hogheart Tomato

Original price was: $4.00.Current price is: $0.00.

Brought from Italy to Massachusetts, probably between 1910 and 1920, and then by Susan Eastman and Ed Lacy of Gray, Maine, to the Exhibition Hall at the 1988 Common Ground Fair, Hog Heart has won many admirers. 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. It is late for extreme northern areas and some fruits catface. “For my money the best paste tomato going,” says “Tomato Lady” Amy LeBlanc.
