Botanical Name: Lycopersiconesculentum
Another old favourite! This large, fleshy tomato matures mid-season with consistent smooth firm fruit. Tasty to eat fresh with itsfantastic flavour, they are best left to ripen fully. Oxheart requires staking and also watch that the heavy fruits don’t touch the ground. Tomatoes grow well on light or heavy soils but you will obtain better results if you add organic matter, some pre-planting fertiliser and the chosen site has good drainage. Excellent source of Vitamin C, A and E, potassium, fibre and antioxidants. Cooking Tip: Serve in salads, sandwiches or on dry biscuits as a healthy lunch or snack.
We hope you enjoy these vegetable seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
