85-90 days – indeterminate vines.
Probably the best known of the Bullock heart class of heirloom tomatoes, this heavy producer of very consistent tomatoes has been a part of the Australian backyard since the end of WWI.
We have found it best grown on steel mesh instead of stakes to keep the very heavy fruit off the ground.
Fantastic flavour fresh, they are best left to ripen fully so that the intense tomato aroma accompanies the taste.
Late Spring germination is usually successful.
